Jonathan’s career goals are simple: he likes to work with good clients, good team members and good people.

He helps oversee and run the audit and assurance practice at Walter Shuffain while playing a large role with our client accounting services teams.

He helps clients establish an accurate and timely financial narrative for attracting financing and meeting investor and or client expectations.

Frequently, Jonathan is available to answer client questions about accounting or tax strategies as he collaborates with his in-house team to ensure those needs are met and satisfied.

Jonathan earned his bachelor’s in accounting degree from Syracuse University and a Master’s in Taxation degree (MST) from Northeastern University. He spent 18 years volunteering in town government, 10 years on the School Committee and eight years on the town’s Finance Committee.

Seeing the Patriots win the Super Bowl, especially when he is with his two boys, brings tremendous joy to his life. He and his family are also big proponents of taking advantage of all mother nature has to offer, especially during the summer time when they spend most of the day – and some nights – outside.
