About me: my name is Jennifer Johnson and I’ve worked in the accounting industry since 1992, mostly as a freelance bookkeeper. My original training was through Universal Accounting, back in the days when it was still offered with a live instructor.

I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Master of Science in Accountancy in December of 2018!

I had clients across the country and was certified in QuickBooks from about 2004 to 2011. A gal who came on board with me in 2005 started as one of my smallest clients and she slowly grew to become my largest client. She needed a business manager, and I wanted to go to work for her. So she offered me a position and I sold my small practice. This was in 2011. In 2016 I finished my bachelor’s degree in accounting from Edison State University. I resigned from my position in 2017 to work on my Master of Science in Accountancy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I finished the master’s degree in December 2018. Have started studying for the CPA exams. I am currently the head teaching assistant for the online MSAcc at the UIUC Gies College of Business and I have two clients. I want to teach accounting at the college level.

I am not looking for new bookkeeping or consulting clients at this time. If or when that changes, I will update this page.

You’ve given me more information in our short phone call than my accountant has given me in six years!
