Jillian Mittelmark, CPA

Founder & President

How did you decide you wanted to work in accounting?

Since I was a teenager, I knew I wanted to own my own business. But being my pragmatic self, I also wanted to know HOW to run a business in order to successfully operate one. So I started taking business and accounting classes in college and fell in love with the operational and accounting work of business management. Ultimately, my business ended up becoming accounting!

What is your favorite thing about working with small business clients at Resolve Works?

I love the passion that small business owners have for their vision. As someone who is naturally geared toward process, organization and structure, I love the balanced dynamic that comes from working with creative visionaries. It’s a great feeling to work with small business owners who feel like they’ve lost their ways and provide information, financial cadence, and forward-momentum.

What three words best describe you?


Where did you grow up? If you aren't from MN how did you end up here?

I grew up in the Twin Cities, but moved to Florida for college and then on to Arizona for a couple years and then back to Minnesota to be near family.

What did you want to be when you were a little kid?

I adore animals and wanted to be a Veterinarian when I was little.

What do you like to do for fun outside of work?

I love the outdoors. My husband and I love boating, hiking, camping and bonfires.

We also volunteer with a local animal shelter and are active cat and dog fosters.

Anything on your bucket list?

Someday I will own a shipping container house in the rainforest in Puerto Rico.

Do you have any quotes or mottos to live by?

The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago, the second best time is today.
