Your go-to firm for all things construction

New Lyfe Accounting helps ambitious business owners like you navigate the financial landscape of the construction industry. Where other firms extend only a portion of their services to construction, it’s our sole specialty.

The unique demands of your industry add a great deal of complexity to managing your finances. You need someone who can crunch the numbers, make sense of the big picture, and help you make strategic decisions for the future. In other words, you need more than just a CPA.

New Lyfe Accounting offers high-level CFO services. We go above and beyond, focusing on strategies that help you plan, meet, and exceed your financial goals well into the future.

Here are just some of the ways we can help:

Analyze job profitability to increase your bottom line.

Develop and implement essential SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) to maximize efficiency, mitigate risk, improve corporate cohesion, and grow your business.

Navigate financial hurdles like job costing, managing cash flow, and increasing bonding capacity.

New Lyfe Accounting is a financial shoulder you can lean on in your business. As your strategic partner, we’ll guide you through every step with accurate, timely, and easy-to-understand financial reports. We’ll help you manage anything that may be holding you back from building a business that lasts. Save time, energy, and most importantly (dare we say), money.

Ready to reach your financial goals? Let’s chat! Book your initial strategy session with us today. During this appointment, we’ll talk through the unique needs of your business and pinpoint your personal and professional goals. From there, we’ll identify how we can best be of service as your Construction Financial Management Team.

Jessica - Owner

Hi! I’m Jessica Krause.


My passion for the construction industry stems from its place in my childhood. Growing up, I spent lots of time at the family sheet metal business, hanging around the shop. I gained a strong respect for the industry and its notoriously hard workers – my family and friends.

In 2006, I started my career in public accounting.
I was fortunate to work with clients of all sizes and industries, including many within the construction industry. In 2012, I was hired as a CFO for a Commercial Electrical Contractor based in
Kansas City.

While in that position, I realized the need for a specialized accounting firm within the construction industry – one that understood the industry’s complexities, processes, and people. From that discovery came New Lyfe Accounting, a specialty firm that provides business owners like you with the tools to grow, profit, and prosper.
