Kimberly (Kim) E. Johnson
Owner, Accountant, Licensed Tax Consultant, Enrolled Agent, M.B.A.
Kimberly (Kim) E. Johnson discovered her knack for being an ‘accountant for the people’ early on in life. After helping a neighbor reconcile her ledgers as a young teen in Connecticut, Kim knew she wanted to work in business and finance, and went on to receive her undergraduate degree from the University of Vermont in 1991. After earning a Master’s of Business Administration and over a decade spent working in the cruise industry in both San Francisco and Miami, she decided to shift gears, relocate back to the west coast, and started laying the groundwork for what would become Accountants on the Go, LLC.
Known for her honest approach, hardworking ethics, and passion for helping others, Kim has built a business with the mission of offering professional, comfortable and convenient accounting services at an affordable cost. Kim specializes in providing accounting services for small business owners and individuals, helping clients catch up on multiple years of tax returns, and meeting the needs of clients by offering “on the go” services in their own home or office. Since the company’s inception in 2013, Kim has grown Accountants on the Go, LLC primarily by word of mouth and referrals, and the support of her outstanding contractual accounting team. Her love of helping others and her gift for explaining the uninterpretable in understandable terms has led her to incorporate training and professional mentoring into her business model.
When she isn’t helping her clients or assisting her staff, it is a safe bet that Kim can be found helping out her community through volunteer service on several finance committees for local non-profits, or pursuing her love of the outdoors, sports and game playing. She is one of the founders of a local Eugene cribbage group and is an established billiards player, typically participating in a weekly league. Kim has a deep respect and love for the game of golf, and enjoys her summers by attending the Oregon Country Fair and other regional music festivals.
