MJ has been crunching numbers and making sense (or cents, if you prefer) out of mathematical conundrums for over 25 years. “I really didn’t like accounting in college, but realized like others I am sure, real life is really the best teacher” MJ admits. Organizing and managing the income and outgo is what MJ is really good at, solving problems for both business and personal accounting needs. “I’ve always been a number-crunching problem-solver, and I guess being a single parent with a tight budget, only reinforced the need.” Brainstorming and solving financial problems grew on MJ so much, that when she found herself at a crossroads, looking at a mortgage payment, and raising her daughter on her own, she built a business around it. It’s no coincidence that “Solutions” is part of her company’s name. She approaches each client individually and works with them to solve their unique challenges. It’s a part of the job she loves.
MJ is empathetic and resourceful. She’s naturally curious and detail-oriented. Trust, confidentiality, and loyalty reside at the front of MJ’s mind. “Client trust is a privilege, and maintaining it is a priority.” But she has a sense of humor too. She was quick to joke that one of her best traits is being left-handed because that means she uses both sides of her brain when problem-solving (and hence, double the benefit!).
