Jennifer DeTar is Owner and Chief Bookkeeper of JMS Services, which offers bookkeeping services and consulting for QuickBooks® to owners of small businesses in Van Nuys, CA, the greater Los Angeles area, and throughout the United States. She is most passionate about helping business owners clean up their bookkeeping records and streamline their back office so they can focus on generating revenue.
Jennifer primarily works with QuickBooks® Online and Desktop accounting software and is a QuickBooks® Online Pro Advisor. Her business serves many different industries, and her niches include service-based and construction clients. She loves helping clients clean up their books, even if it’s a few years’ worth. The reward is seeing a business owner’s reaction when their files are finally caught up, allowing them to file taxes and actually see where money is going each month. A few of Jennifer’s recent client projects include a cleanup using QuickBooks Online for an owner who had recently split from his business partner and procedure development and clean-up for a client with four years of books.
Prior to starting her business in 2014, Jennifer worked in various accounting, tax, and administrative positions throughout her career. She has experience in public accounting, farming, distribution, retail, transportation, real estate, services, and government. She also served in the United States Navy and volunteered at the Los Angeles Dream Center.
Jennifer earned her Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration from Los Angeles Pierce College. She is currently working on completing her accounting degree from Grand Canyon University. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and watching favorites such as Gone with the Wind, Undercover Billionaire, and Queen of the South.
