Remember when you couldn't do business without an accountant? I do! The world has changed a lot since then and I'm proud to say I've been there changing and growing right along with it! As an Enrolled Agent and Owner at Johnson Financial Services, I'm still as committed as ever to serving our loyal clients who are in need of financial planning and assistance! In fact, I've spent the last 10 years of my life being a financial best friend, a partner and a supporter to the clients at Johnson Financial Services.
My personal mission is to help individuals and small businesses succeed with their financial plans. I've committed much of my time to working with individuals who are getting started in business and developing Basic Money Skill Training workshops for elementary aged children to help educate them and ensure our future generations are fiscally informed.

I’ve spoken publically on numerous occasions on the subjects of income tax preparation, financial and tax planning, small business startups, family financial management, issues faced by enrolled agents and many other specialized topics within the industry.

• ENROLLED AGENT - authorized to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service
