About Simmons-Johnson Consulting, LLC

Simmons-Johnson Consulting (SJC), LLC is on a mission to “exceed our government and corporate customer’s expectations while maintaining a level of service that is unparalleled in our professional services industry.”

 A Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Woman-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) and SBA 8(a) certified management consulting firm in Richmond, Texas, a suburb of Houston, Texas. With 30+ years of auditing, accounting, and advisory experience committed to providing services in financial management, contracts Management, project management, cybersecurity, and disaster recovery compliance.

Since starting SJC in 2017, she’s no longer flying solo but has added additional employees to her team. She said her team is unique because she was intentional when hiring her diverse staff. It was important that her company epitomizes diversity, equity, and inclusion. “We’ve got the best professionals who have the expertise in the task that’s assigned to discover unique solutions and make effective business decisions,” she said.

Meeting the customer where they are to ensure they are successful is SJC’s goal. “I’m not so focused on me being successful, but it’s important for my team and me to integrate the team’s goals. When we focus on the client’s needs and goals, SJC is automatically successful because we’ve put the client first,” says Stephanie.

SJC credits her company’s success to fostering our core values: integrity, honesty, giving back to the community, and most importantly being agile. Being in the federal arena, “We have to be nimble enough to go with the client, not so rigid that we can’t pivot. SJC knows how to pivot because they’ve done so successfully for five years. At the heart of knowing how to pivot your business is listening to your customers,” she said. 

In just five years, Stephanie has grown SJC from one employee to successfully managed teams of auditors and accountants performing compliance reviews for funds disbursed by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) and American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. SJC has even taught auditing classes in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Her advice for fellow business owners is “Don’t be afraid to pivot, don’t be afraid to change up what you thought you were going to do.” Additionally, she said, “Use the resources of the SBA both from the informational standpoint from learning how to run a business, but also, financial standpoint. For example, I’ve been able to use SBA’s financial resources like the 7(a) loan to make my business solid. I’m able to focus on growing my business.”

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Stephanie and her team, they’ve won their first 8(a) prime contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Stephanie’s also been nominated for the 2023 National Small Business Week Award for Small Business Person of the Year. The SBA‘s National Small Business Week Award honors individuals and businesses that reflect our nation’s rich diversity.  Winners will be announced in May 2023. And beginning January 2023, Stephanie will serve a two-year term on the NASA Johnson Space Center Small Business Council Board of Directors.
