A little bit about me...
My name is Leah Gayle Bourne, and my first administrative job was right out of high school. I worked to put myself through college doing transcriptions and providing bookkeeping services and administrative services - which I have done ever since for local professors, attorneys, businessmen, students, philanthropists, and mom & pop shop owners. My company, Professional Transcription, began operating in Fayette County in 1993 as a sole proprietorship, and later grew to an LLC. In 2019 we changed the trade name to Bourne Bookkeeping & Administrative Services due to the greatly reduced demand for transcription services. We still do them, don't worry.
