Jessica is a graduate of St. John’s University with a BS in Accounting & Finance. Her proven work ethic during a college internship turned into a full-time position as a Junior Accountant at Wild, Maney & Camera, an accounting firm based in Long Island. After two years, Jessica moved on to Buchbinder Tunick & Company as their Senior Auditor.
Jessica then took a position with Grassi & Company, a large Jericho, LI-based auditing firm, with the challenge of many more clients and diversity of work. While at Grassi, Jessica realized that many of her clients were in the not-for-profit sector, enriching their respective communities. This prompted her to take a position as Senior Staff Accountant at Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, a community-based non-for-profit with a focus on promoting growth and development in Downtown Jamaica. Within a year, Jessica was promoted to her current position as Controller. Jessica is responsible for all areas of accounting including the budget, audit, payroll, fringe benefits, contract administration and financial reporting.
