Jill Brodmarkle is the owner of JB Accounting, P.A.. She joined Carole Paulson Accounting as an Associate in 2003 and later became a Partner in 2009. Jill has experience in a wide-range of accounting types. Even before becoming a Certified Public Accountant, she has had over 20 years of experience in tax preparation, payroll, bookkeeping, auditing, and consulting. Not only has she prepared individual, corporate, and partnership tax returns in her accounting career, she has also prepared many audits for non-profits and gambling organizations.
Jill spent over five years as the Owner/Operator of a security service business where she was responsible for daily accounting duties and year-end financials. This was great experience for her to become a business owner as well as an accountant. She also knows first-hand what it is like to own a small business, including the importance of completing payroll and bookkeeping correctly the first time. As a company, we treat our clients finances with great care, just like we would our own.
With a background in education, Jill has a teaching spirit. In addition to teaching from time-to-time at Central Lakes College, she was also a consultant at the Small Business Development Center. Not only did she help clients develop their business, she helped them prepare cash flow projections and loan packages for financial institutions. With these experiences, she is able to consult JBA clients in many different aspects of their finances and growth.
As a small business ourselves, we believe it is important to give back to the Brainerd Lakes Area community. Jill is currently a Board Member and Treasurer for Pine Haven Youth and Family Services.
