Presenter: Jenna Goldin has been a Licensed Tax Return Preparer in Oregon since 2010. She is a partner at Math LLC (, a tax preparation, consulting and bookkeeping business that focuses on small businesses and creatives. Jenna’s path to taxes was accidental. She was on track to become a therapist when a friend asked her to help set up a bookkeeping system for his record store. She had never done that kind of work before but she was organized and proficient with numbers. One thing lead to another and before long others in her community were asking for help. She saw the need and decided to switch gears from counseling to bookkeeping and taxes. She realized that she could use her communication skills to support people as they deciphered their finances. Her goal is to make accounting more accessible and empowering for people.
