Meet J Raymond Pearson, Jr., CPA

I’m always amused by the “about me” page on websites like this, because they’re written in the third person… even though they’re typically written by the business owner. So, after several attempts to convey myself as the very competent professional I am; I have chosen to write my bio in the first person like it was a letter to a friend. Which… in many ways, it is.

I graduated Bryant University with an accounting degree in 1982 and went straight to work for Ernst & Young (formerly Ernst & Whinny). Being employed at the firm for two years showed me that climbing the corporate ladder wasn't for me. I chose to pursue my CPA certificate and I became a Board Certified Public Accountant in 1991, which led me to start my own firm in 1995.  Working in the financial consulting field for a number of years has provided me with the opportunity to meet a large variety of local business owners and assist them with financial planning.
