Jennifer has over a decade of experience in the field of accountancy. Prior to joining ESM, Jennifer spent six years at a CPA firm in San Francisco, California as a Forensic and Tax Accountant, specializing in fraud examination and bankruptcy. During her time there, she enjoyed performing numerous forensic investigations of fraudulent activity by analyzing large amounts of financial data and turning them into user friendly reports.
Jennifer also has a passion for music education. As a young adult, she was a percussionist with the prestigious drum & bugle corps, The Santa Clara Vanguard, winning the coveted DCI World Championship in her final year. She became a percussion instructor the next year, teaching other aspiring percussionists the skills and lessons she learned as a member. These experiences impacted her life so much that she went on to join the Vanguard Music and Performing Arts (VMAPA) Board of Directors in 2016, and in 2017 she became the Treasurer. As treasurer, she chairs the finance committee.
Jennifer also serves as Treasurer for the Board of Directors of the Northern California Percussion Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a competitive performance outlet and educational experience for Northern California high school and independent indoor percussion ensembles.
Jennifer holds a B.S. in Business Management, with an emphasis in accounting, from San Francisco State University. When she’s off duty, you can find Jennifer and her husband chasing down their two toddlers at the park in the San Francisco Bay Area.
