JoDee Bowen, CPA

A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, upon graduation from what is now known as Southern Adventist University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, JoDee came to Atlanta and spent 10 years working for a large local CPA firm, Babush, Neiman, Kornman and Johnson.

It was at BNKJ that she worked extensively with small, closely held business performing their accounting functions on a monthly or quarterly basis, preparing quarterly payroll tax reports, reconciling accounts or assisting the client bookkeeper with problems in these areas, preparing the annual local tax filings such as personal property returns and preparing the annual business tax return. This overall experience provided JoDee with a broad working knowledge of all things critical and important to running a small business.

In 1994, she shifted her career from being in public accounting to private industry. She spent the next 12 years in the private sector as controller or chief financial person to a dialysis company, the third largest wholesale airline parts company in the U.S. with gross revenues of $100M and a family with multiple family limited partnerships with extensive real estate investments and a 120 bed skilled nursing home facility in Atlanta. In the spring of 2007 after moving out of metropolitan Atlanta 5 years earlier, JoDee “hung out her own shingle” and began her own public practice in the area nearer to home in West Cobb County, Georgia. Despite the downturn in the economy in 2008/2009, JoDee’s practice survived and continued to grow.

She has multiple small business in the Marietta/Cobb County area such as plumbing businesses, an auto body repair shop, chiropractors, therapists, wholesale travel agency, real estate agents and others. Her services include everything from providing bookkeeping services monthly or simply reviewing quarterly the client’s bookkeeping to assist them to preparing the business tax return.

She also has a large individual tax clientele in addition to the small businesses.

Beginning in 2010, Richard Green, CPA joined JoDee with a significant individual tax practice, unique in that most of his clients were clergy and/or U.S. citizens working abroad. Both of these have very unique tax issues involved. This has expanded our range of services and provided a niche that not many CPA firms have. Our clientele includes all 50 states in the Union as well as many countries from Africa, Europe, and Asia. Modern technology makes it as easy to service a client on the other side of the world as it is one who is next door.

Outside of the office, JoDee enjoys entertaining in her home, hiking, camping, and her 2 cats. She is particularly fond of hiking in the Canadian Rockies around Lake Louise and Banff.

After working two years for the firm of Knight and Davidson, Certified Public Accountants, he spent another 13 years in auditing, six of those years in international auditing based in Singapore. There were many international auditing assignments in Asia during that time.

In 1982 he made a career change from auditing into financial management.
