About Jones and Associates

Get to know our staff and learn about why we started Jones and Associates

After several years of auditing, our founder Adam Jones noticed a disheartening trend among the nonprofits he worked with: the issues in their accounting systems went unfixed year after year. With this in mind, he started Jones and Associates in 2006 to assist nonprofit organizations with preparation for their financial statement audits. A decade later, J & A has grown into a full-service accounting solution, providing a full array of services from bookkeeping to outsourced CFO. The firm has served nonprofits exclusively from Day One, allowing them to focus on their greater mission of making the world a better place.

Our Team

Adam Jones

Adam Jones

President

Adam began his career in San Francisco at a CPA firm with a nonprofit audit and tax specialty. Nearly 20 years later, he is still motivated, inspired and enthusiastic about helping nonprofits. In his spare time, he enjoys going to car shows and spending time with his husband Timothy and their friends and family.

Mark Cregar

Mark Cregar

Vice President Strategy and Business Development

After graduating from Albright College and the Wharton School of Business, Mark held various positions for big name companies. But seeing how nonprofits desired to make the world better prompted him to do the same. In his spare time, he has a passion for real estate and typically eats enough for two people.

Mimi Do

Mimi Do

Vice President Client Services

This Yale and Columbia graduate believes that nonprofit doesn’t mean no profit! Mimi has dedicated her career to working with a range of nonprofits from The Juilliard School to the Brooklyn Philharmonic before joining us as our Supervising Manager. Interesting tidbit: she’s performed at Carnegie Hall...twice!

Marin Murray

Marin Murray

Accounting Director

Marin left public accounting after being inspired to serve the nonprofit community, and worked as the Controller at Jewish Vocational Service for five years prior to joining our team. When she’s not working with us, she can be found playing softball or indulging in story time with her son.

Michelle Del Rosario

Michelle Del Rosario

Office Manager

Our Office Manager Michelle thinks it’s refreshing that people want to better the world, not just the bottom line. Her previous company gigs were as a Bookkeeper and a Cash Supervisor, and she loves mid-century modern houses and décor almost as much as writing short stories.

Kathy Gov

Kathy Gov

Senior Accounting Associate

Kathy likes knowing that when she comes to work, she’s able to help better the community even if it’s just a small impact. She previously attended and worked at University of California, Riverside, and spends her free time crocheting stuffed animals and sharing cat photos with her family.

Rita Campos

Rita Campos

Accounting Manager

Rita is our resident Syfy channel lover and works as an Accounting Associate with over 20 years of accounting experience. She loves to golf, rides a motorcycle, and joined our team after most recently working as a Senior Fiscal Manager for Government Contracts with JVS for six years.

Alex Zudin

Alex Zudin

Human Resources and Payroll Manager

Alex comes to us from the red hot LA restaurant scene, where he managed several dining establishments ranging from casual bistros to oh so hip eateries. He then traded his long nights of personnel management, payroll services and operations supervision into long days of the same here at J & A.

Angela Pogossian Maloof

Angela Pogossian Maloof

Accounting Manager

When joining J&A Angela found the perfect union of her passion for helping people and being a part of something greater than just the bottom line.  She comes to us with over 15 years of experience in healthcare administration, bookkeeping, accounting and finance.

Cara Valentini

Cara Valentini

Accounting Manager

Cara came to us from Big Accounting in big cities, having spent eight years in NYC and Los Angeles at Price Waterhouse Coopers. Cara’s nonprofit bona fides are impeccable, with degrees from Georgetown and Columbia Universities (the latter a Masters in Public Affairs); and a seat on the board of Hillsides, a Pasadena based nonprofit.

Ting Song

Ting Song

Accounting Associate

Ting moved to sunny California after spending several gloomy years in England getting her degree in Accounting at the University of Liverpool. But her few years in SoCal have been very productive, with stints in audit, nonprofit accounting and tax accounting. In her spare time, she also managed to score a Masters in Accounting at Loyola Marymount University.

Arnaldo Ochoa

Arnaldo Ochoa

Accounting Associate

Arnaldo is yet another nonprofit accounting veteran here at J & A, having worked as a Senior Bookkeeper at GLAAD for eight years before coming to J & A. When he is not neck deep in debits and credits, he can be found in the great outdoors road biking in rough terrain.

Shirley Kurokawa

Shirley Kurokawa

After a long tenure in public accounting (two large firms, seven years each), Shirley decided to put her CPA to work in the nonprofit world. On the weekends you'll find her outdoors- either hiking or off-roading in her impressive four wheel drive (almost) monster truck.

Kevin Kim

Kevin Kim

Kevin is our most recent CPA, having just scored the designation in 2017. He is another veteran of the UC system, with a degree from UC Santa Barbara. When not helping nonprofits get their finances in order, Kevin's been known to sneak in a superhero movie, a nap, or both simultaneously.

Bailey

Bailey

VP Cuddles

Bailey’s story is a true rags-to-nonprofit riches tale. As a canine nomad wandering the streets of Venice, Bailey was on the receiving side of the nonprofit equation, grabbing scraps of food and belly rubs wherever he could find them. That is, until J & A’s very own Mimi Do rescued him with the help of Voice for the Animals Foundation.
