Jenny Rost grew up in the construction industry, coming from an entrepreneurial, blue-collar family with generations in the trades. She has fond memories of visiting her Dad's job sites as a kid. It is no surprise that she ended up in the construction industry herself.
Jenny enrolled at Bellevue College for interior design with the hopes of one day owning her own business. She was a year into her degree and starting her internship when she found that this path didn't align with her strengths. She took an entry level accounting position with a general contractor. After completing her first credit card reconciliation, she knew she had found her niche.
Throughout the next 15 years, Jenny climbed the corporate ladder, working for well-known contractors and specialty subcontractors. She was promoted through her career from Office Manager to Accounting Manager, and most recently to Contract & Compliance Manager. She was strategic in her education as well, attending Bellevue College for Accounting and later the University of Washington for her Certificate in Contract Management. She is also a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor.
During her career she noticed an ongoing need for comprehensive support to small contractors at a reasonable price, as there was lack of resources available to them. Owning her own business had been a dream of Jenny's for many years, as she is independent and process driven. After checking off her corporate and financial goals, she decided it was time to reconcile her passion and expertise. Jenny left her corporate job with the primary goal of providing industry specific bookkeeping and administration services to construction contractors. This will allow small business owners the opportunity to put hours back in their schedule and increase profitability on their projects.
