Jessica Hussain, CPA, MTX   

Retail, Franchise and Hospitality | Tax Partner



Who I work with

I have helped restaurateurs, multi-unit franchisees, retailers and female-owned businesses realize profitable growth. I work closely with clients at every stage of development from launching their first concept to expanding operations to new locations and markets.

My specialty

I advise clients on setting up their financials correctly, software selection, registering for tax accounts, coordinating payroll set up, and much more. I have an open line of communication with my clients, and we talk frequently as they grow and learn. I can help you understand the key performance indicators (KPIs) that drive your business and I can show you how to use your financial reporting to drive growth. I lead a team of tax and accounting professionals that can simplify tax compliance so you can focus on what you do best.


Results I have delivered

The pandemic had a devastating effect on the hospitality industry, and I am proud to have helped our clients secure millions in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds and continue to help clients navigate PPP loan forgiveness and secure the Employee Retention Credit (ERC).

Unique things about me

I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and love to run. I love to cook and try new recipes. I enjoy serving my community by volunteering my time and expertise.


When I am not at work

I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, running and going on hikes in the North Georgia and Carolina mountains.
