Our values

Caring

Caring is a way of life at Capacity Consulting. We care about our clients and our people. We care about our work, our reputation, and our communities

Confidence

Competence creates confidence, but it is the ultimate level of confidence, when you are able to stand in truth about who you are and what you stand for.

Candor

To achieve a high level of performance for our clients, our consultants are candid about the findings. Research, objectivity and truth are our super powers, and it is candor that brings these powers to life.

Our non-negotiables

Knowing

Our team members must not just be inquisitive, they must NEED to know. This is a fundamental requirement of Capacity team members. This need to know is what drives us to keep going until we find answers and generate results.

Growth

We encourage our people to learn and grow. This drives us to continually improve and never become complacent.

Independence

This flows directly from our CEO who wants this for our clients and our people. Fiscal independence. Physical independence. Mental independence! Being empowered through independence!

In March of 2017, Rosa became partner of Capacity Bookkeeping, and turned her focus towards this venture full time. Though she may have traded her yoga mat for a calculator and excel spreadsheets, she finds happiness through helping her clients at Capacity Bookkeeping and Capacity Consulting. In November of 2017, Rosa was named as one of the Rising Stars of Orange County.
