"Janel and her team seamlessly migrated all of our companies financials to QuickBooks..."

Janel has been a lifesaver! My husband and I have owned our small business since 2016 and I can honestly say I have never felt more confident in my books since I started working with J&S. We have multiple locations, channels of revenue and POS systems and Janel has patiently worked with me to get my books organized exactly how I need to see them, which was no easy feat! Businesses function on well built systems and our bookkeeping system needed a lot of help. Janel worked with me to rebuild, fine tune, and is assisting me in maintaining our bookkeeping system and I am forever grateful!

"We highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with bookkeeping!"

Janel has helped us navigate our bookkeeping and tax prep for several years now, and we'd be lost without her! We highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with bookkeeping!
