Striving to Make an Impact

At JHM, we collectively work hard for our clients, giving them the best service, advice and plans. We trust that everyone on our team is important and gives the best they have to offer, making us a very informative company. We believe in our team, and it shows in the work they do for each client, creating a customized, successful plan to ensure a prosperous future.

Take a moment to hear from our team members.

My clients challenge me with questions and new projects.  I have done work for many clients for over a decade, but every year brings new opportunities.  I enjoy being able to learn new areas and assist my clients with all aspects of business and personal accounting and consulting.

Sharon Brooks, Senior Audit Manager


As a tax preparer, I love working for my clients because I believe my services, and those of my firm, provide them with the integral services they require to keep their tax-related risk and tax burdens as low as possible. When our clients retain our services, I believe they have some of the best minds in our area working for them, protecting their interests. 

I love knowing what I do helps them in an area of their business, or personal life, that to some is quite confusing, but arguably the most important and impactful aspect of their personal or business’ financial well being.

Each time I work for a client, I treat the work as if it were regarding my own business, working as thoroughly and accurately as possible, while remaining efficient to keep their costs as low. 

Chip Zehnder, Tax Staff Accountant



I am in constant communication with my clients, not just during audit time. I know that I am a trusted advisor to them and that my work is making an impact in their business that I am playing a part in their success and that brings me great satisfaction in what I do.

Scott Miller, Audit Manager




It isn’t often that a CPA firm has an environment in which employees feel like friends and clients feel at home, but JHM really has found the balance between professionalism and congeniality.”

Jessie Ferrell, Audit Senior



I get to see firsthand the wonderful things that my clients do for others and the impact that these non-profits have on the lives of so many people.  I see kids that would be living on the streets if it weren’t for the residential program at Chambliss. I see low-income parents that are able to work any hours of the day or night because Chambliss has childcare 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. I see mentally handicapped individuals that go to work every single day and love what they do because Orange Grove Center provides them a place to work and gives them the training they need to hold a job. I see families that are provided a room, meals and support while their children have an extended stay in the hospital because they are able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House. My clients touch lives.  They make a difference.  I feel good about what I do because I see the difference they make.

Julie Davis, Senior Audit Manager 



At JHM we are more than just employees, we are members of a team.  Everyone is provided with the opportunity to maximize their career potential.

Derek Young, Senior Audit Manager
