Devine Consulting was founded by Jennifer Devine, a Certified Public Accountant, that has deep experience in accounting and informational systems software. Jennifer Devine graduated from the Mays School of Business at Texas A&M University in 1996 where she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting. She received her CPA license in 2000.
Jennifer has in excess of 15 years of experience, which includes serving as the Controller for an internationally respected commercial real estate investment, management and brokerage firm. She was responsible for all aspects of accounting for the operational divisions, which included internet services, real estate development, property management, brokerage services, and club activities. Since it was an international company there was the need to report in both domestic and international currencies. Jennifer specifically utilized the cross currency functionality of software to report multi-currencies out of one system (versus dual entry), ultimately saving the company hundreds of thousands in man power.
The idea of running her own business and doing exactly what she loves has always been Jennifer’s dream. In 2011, Jennifer had the opportunity to purchase Accounting & Technology Solutions from the previous owner. Accounting & Technology Solutions is a certified reseller of the software Microsoft Dynamics SL (formerly known as Solomon). She then merged Accounting & Technology Solutions into Devine Consulting to encompass her accounting professional expertise with the software side of the business. Jennifer strives to provide her clients with personalized customer service.
I want them to know me personally and feel like they are getting the best possible service. I feel like my Accounting background and my use of the system from a client perspective gives me an advantage over other consultants, as I know what management ultimately expects to receive and how the end users use the system.
