Mattison, Yoder is pleased to announce Julie Cummins has joined our team! Julie is the new face at our front desk, replacing Chris Bailey. Don’t worry Chris is not leaving the firm, she is moving up to a full-time bookkeeping position here!
Julie will be taking on many responsibilities that come along with being at the front desk, such as greeting you when you visit our office. Among other things, she will also be taking on the very important bill pay responsibility for our bookkeeping clients.
Julie brings a wealth of knowledge to our team as she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from DeVry University and has many years of financial accounting and individual income tax experience. During her three children’s school age years, Julie stayed home as a full-time mother. In the last six years she had been working part-time for another local accounting firm before joining our team.
During her spare time, Julie enjoys reading, kayaking, and is very busy chauffeuring her children to various activities. She and her family are members of the St. Paul Catholic Church in Westerville.
She is looking forward to getting to know all of you, so please help us welcome her when you get the chance!

For many business owners, September tends to bring a bit of a slowdown. The chaos of getting kids prepared for going back to school has passed, and a focus on saving money tends to kick in as people prepare for the coming holiday spend. Combined, this can often translate into a lull for business owners.
