Michele Dolan

Michele (“Chelli”) joined the team here at FJK for the 2023 tax season.

Chelli holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Holy Family University and a Master of Science in OT from Temple University.  She is a native of Philadelphia where she lives with her husband and two children in the Northeast.

With the birth of her first child, she left the healthcare field to become a full-time homeschooling mom. Over the next two decades, she homeschooled her children through high school and undertook positions that could work around her family life, including becoming a lactation educator and postpartum doula.  She also volunteered as a chess instructor in the Philadelphia After School Activities Partnerships, fostered dogs for Wags Rescue & Referral and has been a supporting member of the Friends of the Free Library of Philadelphia.

These days she dedicates her time to serving as a board member of both the Alumni Association and Parent Association of Holy Family University.  and is an active supporter of the university’s Family Center programs.

When her children started college, she changed career paths and began working for a local tax firm where for the last five years she managed the assembly and e-filing department, prepared tax returns, and assisted clients in navigating the FAFSA and the new W4. She is a member of the Pennsylvania Society of Tax & Accounting Professionals (PSTAP) and the National Association of Tax Preparers (NATP) and holds an ASFP Record of Completion from the IRS.  She is continuing her education toward becoming an Enrolled Agent and looks forward to growing as a tax professional with our firm.
