Ingrid Edstrom

Ingrid is a bookkeeping nerd and the CEO of Polymath. She loves taking topics that most small business owners put on a scale from boring to terrifying and turning them into a fun and rewarding part of entrepreneurship. Ingrid is the creator of the AskABookkeeper.com online education series, a member of the Intuit Trainer/Writer Network, and leader of the Southern Oregon Woodard Group. She has been recognized as one of the accounting profession’s Top 40 Under 40 and as one of the Most Powerful Women in Accounting by CPA Practice Advisor magazine.

Ingrid started Polymath in 2008, and jumped right into being a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor at that time. Since then she has taken “bookkeeping nerd” to the next level, by always staying on the cutting edge of the industry and teaching our accounting colleagues how to do the same. Ingrid always enjoys taking on big projects, learning new things, and helping others get on the road to success… especially when it involves puppets. (If you don’t enjoy it, what’s the point!)

When Ingrid is not playing her favorite video game (QuickBooks), she is usually playing Irish music or frolicking with her goats. Ingrid also enjoys singing, dancing, gardening, and adventuring around the world with friends and family. She lives on a small farm with her goats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys, kitties, and snakes. She and her husband Jeffrey play Irish music in an Ashland, Oregon band, The Feckin’ Tinkers.
