Carrie L. Jellison, CPA

Carrie Jellison established her accounting firm, Jellison CPA, with a single principle in mind: to provide the highest level of personalized client service possible. Simply put, Carrie cares about each and every one of her clients and their unique circumstances. Because Carrie believes in the value of relationships, she seeks to build a partnership with every client; she truly believes that her success is a result of her clients’ satisfaction. For twenty years as a CPA, Carrie has offered expert accounting, tax, and business consulting services to hundreds of individuals, small businesses, and non-profit organizations. During that time, she has determined communication to be the key to a long-lasting and meaningful client relationship. Ms. Jellison is a dedicated and detail-oriented professional, member of the MiCPA, AICPA, and current treasurer of the Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to being an accountant, Carrie is, more importantly a wife and mom of 3. Being a small business owner and busy mom, puts her in a unique position to be able to relate to clients and their various needs. When Carrie is not in the office, you will find her diving into a novel, camping with family and friends, or at the ballpark watching her son play baseball.
