I have a corporate background in telecommunications project management. My transition to bookkeeping was organic, I started managing my husband’s books for his small construction company years ago. I went on to earn my QuickBooks certification. From there things took off; so, a few years ago, I started my own boutique bookkeeping firm – Prestige Bookkeeping Services, LLC. I enjoy working with small businesses nationwide to help them to become more profitable. Prestige Bookkeeping Services, LLC offers customized bookkeeping packages to meet the needs of each business we service. We take care of the books, so our clients can focus on other aspects of their business and do what they do best!   

I am a certified by Intuit as a QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor, I am certified in Live Plan; a budgeting and forecasting tool and have earned a certification in LeanLaw; a software used by law firms that seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks Online.  

I love people, and love helping our clients achieve a sense of confidence. They know I am there for them every step of the way. I live in Palm Beach County Florida with my husband of 23 years. We are empty nesters, living in paradise (aka South Florida) we enjoy playing golf, going to the beach, outdoor concerts, exercising and reading. I love learning and am always looking for new opportunities to expand my knowledge.

Arlene Smith 

Arlene Smith, I speak fluent Medicare
Life and Health Insurance Advisor,

Medicare and Retirement Focused
Palm Beach County School District Approved Retirement Vendor

Arlene helps people find ways to protect their hard earned assets from unexpected medical expenses.

She is a Florida licensed Life and Health insurance advisor broker with the Assurance Group (TAG) for four (4) years. Although she is licensed to sell Life Insurance, Hospital Indemnity, Critical Illness and Annuities, she specializes in helping people turning 65, planning on retiring, and already on Medicare to navigate the Medicare maze. She helps them to find the right plan based on their lifestyle, needs and budget. She will also work with your Financial Advisor, CPA or Human Resource department to find you the best fit. There is NO Fee to you for her services.

Having been raised by a philanthropic, older, fun loving and hard-working “think outside of the box” couple, Arlene was taught to treat others as she would like to be treated; thus, she has a generous nature. Today, she lives by the words “Doing good to others is not a duty. It is a joy, for it enriches your own health and happiness.” Whether it be a voting member of the School Advisory Council (SAC) with Wellington High School. Board member of Project Graduation 2020 (that sadly did not happen). Volunteering with Wellington Cares. Making sandwiches weekly at Bethesda by-the Sea for St. George’s soup kitchen. Making to go dinners with Parianna Precious Hands and once a month volunteering and delivering food with Feed the Pantry of Palm Beach. She is willing to help and be supportive to all.

Before relocating with two (2) elementary school aged children from Bergen County, New Jersey in 2008, her husband found the best school district in all of Palm Beach County…Wellington! Thus, how she ended up here.

Arlene has numerous interests but not enough time to pursue them all.

She can be seen at most Wellington Chamber events. Always wearing a big smile, a huge flower on her lanyard and a hat. (Sounds like an exhibit at the zoo). Do not hesitate to say hello when you see her.
