Bookkeeper Girl Special Contributor Colette Yetka

Administrative assistant Yetka is familiar face across Denton
If you live or work in Denton, it’s a good bet that you’ve seen the smiling face of Colette Yetka on more than one occasion.
It might be at a ribbon cutting for the Chamber of Commerce, where she serves as an ambassador, is a Leadership Denton Alumni and is a Denton Star for the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. It might be at St. Mark Catholic Church, where she serves as a eucharistic minister and a lector, or serving on the board of directors of Interfaith Ministries. It might be at the Denton Kiwanis Club, where she recently served as president, or at the Denton Benefit League, where she is an active member. It might be ballroom dancing. Or it might be taking her grandchildren on an outing.
“I especially enjoy spending time with my grandchildren,” Ashley, 13, Brooke, 11, and Logan, 3,” said the mother of two.
In addition to her grandchildren, she is extremely proud mother of her daughter, Cindy, who is a veterinarian and lives in Copper Canyon, and her son, Chad, who is president of American Home Builders& Mortgage Corp. in Denver.
Sometimes, Colette can even be found in her Denton home, where she enjoys gardening. For someone with so many activities, you’d think Colette is retired – far from it.
Colette is the administrative assistant for Bookkeeper Girl, where she has worked since the business formed on Oct. 1, 2008. “I enjoy the work,” said Colette, whose duties include networking, advertising, marketing and just about everything but bookkeeping.
She also enjoys the flexibility, allowing her to enjoy her other passions.
Obviously a real people person, Colette said her job involves dealing with the public quite a bit, and that’s a real perk. “I enjoy all the personnel I come in contact with,” she said.
