Our Team

We strive for accuracy, efficiency, flexibility, and great relationships with our clients.

Jessica Weber McGrail

President, Quickbooks Online Certified ProAdvisor

Bookkeeping is my passion and small business owners are a close second!  Keeping our clients finances in order is our top priority.  We treat our clients like family and will never lose the ability to have those relationships.  We love being a part of our community by being involved in our Batavia MainStreet events, serving on the Board of Directors with the Batavia Chamber of Commerce, serving as the Treasurer on the Board of Directors for the Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry, and organizing the Batavia Farm to Table Dinner event every year!

On a personal level, my husband and two children are at the center of my universe.  Their love and support is amazing.  When we are not hard at work, we enjoy bike riding on the Fox River Trail, gardening, having ice cream and walking around our great town of Batavia!

Lead Bookkeeper

I met Jessica through a mutual friend in December of 2016 and have been working for Dollar and Sense Bookkeeping since January 2017. I can honestly say I enjoy going to work every day!

I have over 20 years of bookkeeping experience specializing in contractor/trades, payroll and sales tax.  I continue to learn every day to keep up with the most recent rules and regulations to provide the best service possible to my clients.

I grew up in West Chicago and have lived in Montgomery for over 15 years with my son and dog. I graduated from NIU with a Bachelor’s in Arts. When not working I am an active baseball and football mom and love watching my son play.  I also enjoy reading, movies and spending time with friends and family.

How It All Began

Founder, Jessica Weber McGrail (left), and her incredible mom who started it all

20+ years ago, my mom decided to get out of corporate America and open her own small business. She started a bookkeeping business in her basement within nothing but a whole lot of heart and a lot of experience in accounting. Throughout high school, college, and beyond, I worked side-by-side with my mom and developed a true love for bookkeeping, small businesses, and our clients.

Our lives changed forever in August of 2009, when my mom was unexpectedly called to heaven. As we celebrated her life, two of her clients asked if I would continue their bookkeeping. They hoped I would follow in my mom’s footsteps and keep her legacy alive and I was honored they had the confidence in me to continue managing their accounts.

Turning in my massage therapy career, I formed Dollar and Sense Bookkeeping, Inc. August of 2024 marks 15 years of growth, learning, serving, and love for what we do.

We have a professional trusted name and a lot to offer small business owners. Everyday we provide the best level of service possible for our clients and I know we are making my mom proud.
