Jessy Ellefson, Ecommerce Accountant

I am originally from South Dakota.  My mother was a land title contractor and her position ended up moving us to Montana and then later to the Portland area, where I graduated high school.  I developed an interest in numbers and accounting while in high school.  I so enjoyed the courses that were offered, that I used all of my electives to take business courses.  I was given a major in business award my senior year.  I was also awarded 3 scholarships to begin my accounting degree at the University of Washington.  My family ended up returning to Montana, where I began my studies in accounting.  I began doing taxes for friends and family at the age of 18. 

My studies were put on hold when I began a family.  After my children were older, I began a job in operations for a large telecommunications company.  After years of being in operation management, I decided that I missed working with numbers and returned to college to complete my degree. 

After graduation, I was offered a position as a bookkeeper for a former employee and friend.  I worked as a contractor, under my own business name.  I began picking up other small businesses to assist them with their bookkeeping needs.  Most recently, I have worked with a company that owns several hotels.  I have discovered that marketing is not my forte and found the task of finding new clients daunting. I am very excited to work with a growing company that focuses on new technology and a paperless office.

I have lived in Colorado, off and on, for 10 years and enjoy the many opportunities that are available in the area.
