Jackie founded Get Organized!, LLC (or GO!) in January 2007 to combine a love of teaching and mentoring with an instinctual drive to organize. Jackie left her job as Controller and HR Manager at a Corvallis-based technology development company in October 2011 to focus on Get Organized! full-time. Jackie began teaching QuickBooks software classes in partnership with Linn-Benton Community College in 2012. Classes are listed at Events. Jackie also provides training in the community on a broad range of topics (To see a list of presentation topics click here). From 2015 to 2022 Jackie was partnered with Remodelers Advantage as one of their accounting consultants. Jackie has facilitated peer group meetings, presented at national conferences and has been a guest speaker on podcasts and webinars.
As part of our commitment to community, GO! donates time, supplies and moola to support our non-profits. Jackie has served on numerous non-profit boards including Heartland Humane Society and the Institute of Applied Ecology. She currently volunteers for Linn-Benton Community College’s Accounting Technology Advisor Committee.
