My name is Jennifer Johnson and I am currently the Head Teaching Assistant at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (part-time), currently developing an accounting curricular project set to launch in August 2019 on Coursera. Formerly a Freelance Accountant then Associate Director with over 20 years of professional accounting experience. I have prepared at least 1,700 sets of finished financial statements, 6,000 reconciliations, prepared or managed at least 1.2M lines of general ledger entries, prepared hundreds of internal financial reports and various kinds of tax returns (income, payroll, sales), and manually handled over $4.2M in client cash and other liquid assets. Examples of industries I have served include Manufacturing/Wholesale, Wholesale Distribution, Retail, Engineering, various Construction/Contracting Services, Real Estate, Public Relations, Medical, Non-Profit, Automotive, Agricultural, Legal, Grocery, Beauty Salons, and Graphic Design. Legal entity types served include Non-Profit, C-Corp, S-Corp, Partnership, LLC, and Sole-Proprietorship.
I’ve worked at the small end of the business market for so long that I know how the books are supposed to look. I know when something is wrong and how to track it down.
You’ve given me more information in our short phone call than my accountant has given me in six years!
