Our Employees: The Secret to Our Success
Since we opened our doors at JR Bookkeeping in 2012, we’ve been passionate about the community we call home. Our founder, Juliana Ramirez, and her sister, COO Natalia, grew up in Carpinteria and both live in Oxnard.
Juliana studied at Santa Barbara City College, and Natalia at Oxnard College and Cal Lutheran. Ninety-seven percent of our clients are from Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
However, community means more to us than just living and working in Ventura County. It means giving back. By providing jobs to a small staff of 10 employees (all locals, by the way), we’re helping others to live, work and invest in our community.
Our Employees are Your Partners
We believe that our employees are truly our greatest asset. Because of them, we’re able to provide the second-to-none service in which we take so much pride.
At JR Bookkeeping, each of our clients is assigned their own personal bookkeeper. This means that every client receives one-to-one, individualized service from an expert who personally understands their unique needs and circumstances.
In other words, our employees aren’t just account managers. They’re partners with you.

Economic Development Collaborative Opens Post-Fire Business Recovery Center to Serve LA and Ventura Counties
The Economic Development Collaborative, as host of the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), will open a Small Business Administration Business Recovery Center at its offices in Camarillo. The center will provide a wide range of free services, from specialized consulting to disaster loans, to businesses impacted by the region’s wildfires.
Located at 4001 Mission Oaks Blvd., Suite B, in Camarillo, the Center will operate Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. No appointment is needed, and all services are free of charge. The Center will be closed on Thanksgiving, Nov. 22.
The office will serve all areas affected by recent wildfires, from Malibu and Westlake Village to Simi Valley and the San Fernando Valley. “We’re grateful that our collaboration with the LA SBDC network enabled us to get up and running quickly because the property damage, job and income loss, and other economic hardship hits hard, fast and with deep impacts throughout the community,” said Ray Bowman, director of the SBDC hosted by the EDC.
As a one-stop help center, business owners and managers can receive specialized one-on-one services to help them re-establish their operations and overcome the effects of the disaster. They also can learn how to apply for an SBA disaster loan, which can help finance their recovery. “Services include assessing business working capital needs, evaluating the business’s strength, cash flow projections, loan application assistance and counseling on the options and best course of action to move forward,” said Bowman.
Businesses of any size and private, nonprofit organizations may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory and other business assets not covered or fully covered by insurance, Bowman said. In addition, there are other specialized loans available for small businesses and nonprofits that did not have property damage but suffered economic injury due to the fires.
Business owners who are unable to visit the Business Recovery Center in Camarillo may apply online using the SBA’s secure website at https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.

MWS Wire Industries was founded in 1968 in Canoga Park, California, under the name Magnet Wire Supply Company as an independent distributor of film insulated copper wire (magnet wire), engineered alloy and plated wire for manufacturers of aerospace components, computer memory devices, sensors, specialized motors, transformers, solenoids and related electromagnetic components. In 1973 MWS purchased a building in Chatsworth where it began manufacturing custom engineered wires to complement the distribution operation and in 1979 the company name was changed to MWS Wire Industries. As the business thrived a new facility was built in Westlake Village where MWS has operated the past 37 years. In that time the product line expanded with the revival of a vintage insulation formulation for electric guitar pickup wire, micro-diameter insulated wire used in ‘smart catheters’ for minimally invasive surgical procedures and a variety of engineered products used in industrial, automotive and aeronautic devices. In 2014 MWS was acquired by Elektrisola, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of fine gauge copper magnet wire. Last year the company purchased a 5.7 acre lot in the McInnes Ranch Business Park in Oxnard and has developed plans for a 60,000 square foot manufacturing and warehouse building projected to open in 2019. With 49 employees having an average tenure of 21 years, MWS Wire Industries looks forward to many more years of growth and success as a member of the business community in Oxnard.
