"I'm proud of the fact that I can call many of our clients my friends. Developing a strong relationship helps us work together as a team."
Jennifer loves working on puzzles and that's how she feels about some of the global tax issues she handles for clients. While clients' projects may look similar on paper, she feels that every employee is unique, bringing her a different challenge to puzzle out. She has lived in Europe two separate times and credits those experiences for helping her appreciate the needs and concerns of international assignees.
She has more than 20 years experience in expat and foreign national tax preparation and consulting. She joined GTN in January 2011 and serves as Managing Director for the Great Lakes region. She started her career with Arthur Andersen, and then joined Ernst & Young, where she served for over 14 years.Jennifer is known for:
- Extensive technical tax knowledge;
- Coaching clients to understand the complexities of sending employees overseas;
- Working through the different requirements of home and host reporting;
- Explaining international tax issues in understandable terms.
She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Drake University in 1991, and a master's degree in international business with an emphasis in German from Pepperdine University in 1994. She is an IRS Enrolled Agent.
When she's away from the office, Jennifer is an avid reader and keeps her nightstand and e-reader loaded with books, so she always has one at hand. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, playing games with her young children, and coaching her daughter's soccer team.
