My name is Brad Yochum and I am the founder of QBcure, LLC. I wanted to create a niche business focused solely on QuickBooks. I realized that most small to medium size businesses utilized QuickBooks, so given my background and expertise it only made sense to create a company focused around those needs.
I have an undergraduate business degree from California State University,
Fullerton with an emphasis in Finance and an MBA in Accounting from Baker College, Michigan.
My favorite bands: Elvis Presley, Garth Brooks and Duran Duran.

I was born and raised in the heart of Orange County, California. In 2013 my family and I moved to Nashville, Tennessee.
As a little girl I loved playing “bank”, so it’s fitting that bookkeeping has become my profession. I have been using Quickbooks for over 20 years and am proficient in both Quickbooks Desktop and Quickbooks Online. I love clean books and want each account to reconcile down to the penny.
I am a wife and a mom to 3 kiddos. When I am not working, I am a wanna be baker and a sunset hunter.
Favorite Bands: Jack Johnson, Josh Groban and Blake Shelton
My Name is Seth Soon. I graduated from the Mihaylo College of Business at Cal State Fullerton with a degree in Accounting. I find accounting interesting because it is the language of business. I like being able to understand how people translate dreams of owning their own business into action. From High School through the end of college I was a private tutor and found it very fulfilling. The most important lesson I learned from tutoring is that you can explain one thing in many ways. I try to apply that motto in all situations so that I can empathize and communicate with the people around me.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking, eating, and seeing movies. My most memorable hiking experience was coming face to face with a bear and moose in Wyoming. It’s my most memorable experience because it reminds me that there’s a bigger world outside of the cities I spend most of my time in. That hike was part of a 20 day camping road trip my best friend and I took during a college summer to see six national parks (Grand Canyon, Zion, Yellowstone, Glacier, Banff, and the Grand Tetons). I enjoyed meeting and talking with people from all walks of life just as much as the parks themselves.
Favorite Bands/Artists: Porter Robinson, Frank Sinatra and The Foo Fighters

The founder, Veronica Sanchez of the non-profit Nicaragua Children’s Friendship Committee (ncfckids.org) was our personal guide in Leon, Nicaragua back in 2015. We were able to spend quality time with the youth, meet with local officials and have home visits to show family conditions. Veronica being born in Nicaragua and now residing in San Francisco, has a passion and genuine care for the well-being of these kids that is quickly apparent. She is not only making a difference in the kid’s lives but that she is also a surrogate mother, role-model, mentor, drill sergeant and protector of these kids.
This trip which I hope to make again very soon had a lasting impression on me, realizing that we are all one nation, helping each other and we can all in our own small or large way make a difference in someone’s life. Veronica had recently passed away in September 2018 but her legacy and mission lives on helping the kids of Leon with her husband Jeffrey Bornstein.
