Meet our Franchisees
Paula Johnson of Hartford, South Dakota

APRIL 13, 2020

Paula is a CPA that has worked with businesses in a variety of industries. Throughout her career, she has experienced challenges when customizing the payroll process to fit in-house payroll systems, and this led her to seek out more efficient solutions for her clients. Paula’s search guided her to Payroll Vault where she was immediately impressed with the Leadership Team and the quality of the technology, products and services included in “The Vault”. Fast forward two years as an owner of a Payroll Vault franchise, she now specializes in payroll and partners with fellow accountants and professional service firms to provide more personalized and efficient systems for their clients.

Paula’s goal for the upcoming year is to continue to support local businesses in her community and provide payroll and workforce management solutions to help business owners manage their business, manage their employees and keep them compliant. Through partnerships in her local professional community, Paula continues to make a difference in supporting the success of small businesses. 


When Paula is not working, she makes the most of all of the seasons that South Dakota has to offer. You will find her outdoors with friends and family - hiking, kayaking, fishing, snowmobiling and exploring the Black Hills on the UTV.
