The faces behind Good Sense Accounting

When Good Sense Accounting was founded, there was a desire to do more than just the numbers.  After years of experience, the founders understood that individuals and business owners need advice and guidance more than a number cruncher.  Early on, there was a decision to develop and provide services that help the clients of Good Sense Accounting achieve the vision they have for their business and/or family.

The founders chose Issaquah to be the base of their operation.  As a city, it has a thriving business community while maintaining a family-oriented and old town feel to it.  Not only is it a good place to build a business, it is a better place to build a family.

As a location, Issaquah offers easy access to much of the Puget Sound region.  Seattle is a short ride away.  Communities such as Bellevue, Redmond, Renton and Sammamish are very easy to get to enabling us to personally serve our clients.

As Good Sense Accounting has grown, it has embraced new technology.  Now with Cloud computing, we are able to serve clients that have operations inside as well as outside the Puget Sound Region.  A number of our clients have operations as far away as Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Texas.  In addition, we serve tax clients throughout the United States as well as clients in Asia that have investments in the US.

The Founders

Don and Jieling Quinn are not only the founders of Good Sense Accounting but are also husband and wife.  They enjoy the opportunities that working together provide.  Along with their teenage son, Steve, they enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, movies, reading and spending time with friends and relatives.  They are members of Eastridge Church in Issaquah and have travelled to Cambodia on mission trips.

They both serve as members of the Board of Directors of the South East Asia Prayer Center that serve the needs of children in Cambodia, Laos, India and Tibet as well as ministries in many other nations.

Don and Jieling also have an essential oil business called Essential Oils for a Green Life.  And they are the authors of the Facebook page Essential Oil Business Tax Tips.

Don Quinn

Don started his career in New Jersey after graduating from Fairleigh Dickinson University.  His first five years were working with Deloitte Haskins + Sells (now Deloitte & Touche).  After that he started his own firm and served a multitude of businesses for 20 years.  In 2001 he moved to Issaquah and shortly after marrying Jieling, they started Good Sense Accounting.

Don is also President of  The Jose M. Garcia Foundation based in New Jersey with operations in New Jersey, South Carolina and Washington.  He enjoys the opportunity of helping those in need in the local New Jersey region and in other parts of the world.

Jieling Quinn

Jieling is originally from the Henan Province in China and began her career in the Shanxi Province.  While in China, she worked in the media and retail industries. After she came to the United States, she continued her formal training in bookkeeping.

She has assisted companies looking to do business in China as well as Chinese companies looking to do business in the United States. Her understanding of both cultures and the way business is conducted in both countries helps companies on both sides of the Pacific work together.

Her cultural heritage has provided opportunities to serve the Asian community in the Seattle area. She is fluent in Mandarin.

Bookkeeping has evolved over the years.  It used to be a tedious task requiring manual postings in various ledgers and journals.  Then came one-write systems that used carbon paper enabling the posting to multiple locations with one writing of the pen.  Not long after…read more
