The best I can come up with is "Random Crap Coordinator"

I need a job title! I've been working for a company for a little over 14 months and need a name for what I do. We are not so organized that anyone's given me a title and even if the correct answer is "Make your boss give you an official job title", I'd like an idea of what to aim for.

I work part time and do all of the payroll, commissions, some state licensing paperwork, some HR stuff like termination and new hire paperwork, some travel arrangements, and some bookkeeping. I do lots of excel recordkeeping. In the past year I've also been a legal assistant here (mostly emailing letters to lawyers - forwarding claims and checking up on claims), been in charge of reconciling all of the bank accounts and finding all the plentiful errors and trying to help correct them. I was hired because the old bookkeeper was stealing all of the money and I helped figure out how much she took and how. I do a lot of emergency tasks - "OMG, we got all these letters saying we didn't pay taxes, can you figure that out?", "Why is our balance in the computer always tens of thousands of dollars off from what the bank says it is?" I'm currently teaching myself QuickBooks because soon I'll be doing all the bookkeeping, deposits and bill paying. Also, they have me do some not great graphic design, like business cards, fixing the new logo in photoshop and marketing postcards. I also am the backup for the guy who runs reports and takes payments when he's on vacation or sick. Note: I am not trained or particularly qualified to do any of these things, I've just been kind of (barely) trained by people leaving their jobs and have been teaching myself. I'm not a manager, but I don't want to be called an assistant either, although part of what I do is definitely Admin Assistant for the CEO/Owner. I don't do all of these things anymore, but I've done all of them for various amounts of time in the past year. I pretty much make no money, but I can come and go whenever I want or work from home as long as I get payroll done. (Also, I now have a job to put on my resume from the 2000s. I was a stay at home mom from 1999 - 2013. I would like to know what to call that job.)
