“It was a pleasure to have Mr. Johnson visit our class and share his experiences as a CPA,” said Alex Harris, Business Management instructor. “It was a really great opportunity for our students to hear a local professional’s perspective on the importance of having an accountant as a small business owner, and to debunk several myths about the accounting profession.”

Johnson joined Dabbs, Hickman, Hill, & Cannon in 2005 and specializes in small business advisory, tax planning and preparation services, and audit and financial reporting.
