Meet the Team

Our team is passionate about a lot, but we're especially passionate about supporting small businesses. Get to know us below.

Caleb Fitzgerald

Caleb is the founder and principal of Black Gallina. He helps potential clients find the best plan for their needs and provides business coaching, CFO services, and management consulting for existing clients. He believes small businesses are the reason we love the places we live, and he understands how small business owners—and the decisions they make—have a direct impact on the community. Outside of work, he enjoys reading, woodworking, and building things.

Pablo Chavez

Pablo provides accounting and bookkeeping support to Black Gallina’s clients. Pablo’s passion for supporting small businesses is personal: his parents’ small business supported his family growing up, so he understands firsthand what goes into running a business and what it symbolizes beyond the sale of goods and service. Outside of work, he enjoys running, listening to music, trying new restaurants, and eating fresh bread from local bakeries.

Emily Hertberg

Emily provides invaluable administrative and operations support to the Black Gallina team and its clients. An outdoor connoisseur who loves mountain biking, surfing, and backpacking, Emily is passionate about small businesses because there’s a stronger connection to the goods and services and the people and community who make them possible.

Karu

Karu is the office helper and is an expert at providing smiles, screen breaks, and the occasional (very vocal) opinion. He loves small businesses because they reliably give out treats and pets—big box stores never do that! His favorite small business is the local butcher, where, if he's on his best behavior, he'll get some yummy treats to eat at home.

Rachael Hensley

Rachael provides bookkeeping support to Black Gallina's clients. She helps ensure everyone's books stay organized and up to date. In her spare time she likes to crochet, travel the world with her husband and son, and try new international cuisines. She personally cares about small businesses because her dad is a small business owner. He has been a business owner since she was five, and she even got her passion for bookkeeping from helping him with his accounting in high school! She has a passion for helping small businesses because she knows first hand that accurate financials help companies grow and flourish.

Mollie Aldridge

Mollie provides operations support to the Black Gallina team and its clients. She has personally seen how small businesses have a huge impact on a community. She has done bookkeeping work for small businesses in her community and loves to see those businesses thriving. In her spare time Mollie enjoys singing and playing the piano, reading, and spending time with her husband and family.

Julie Warren

Julie provides bookkeeping support to Black Gallina clients. Helping other small businesses succeed is her passion. Her bookkeeping career started when she opened her own small business. She knows the time and effort it takes to make a small business succeed. Outside of work, she loves spending time outdoors, camping, fishing and hiking with her husband and daughter. Or sometimes, just reading a good book and listening to music.
