How I help . . .

I have always liked numbers, solving problems and helping others. I like to take messy information and turn it into a neat useable format. I take a hands-on approach to client service, and I care about their successes and struggles.

One particularly satisfying experience I had at Adams Brown was a few years ago, when a client with multiple locations was looking to switch software systems and switch accountants. At the time, their records for each location were kept separately, and only the accountant consolidated the information on an annual basis. The owners of the company had a difficult time knowing how they stood as a company. I successfully worked with the client and the new software company to clean up and combine the records, so that everything was integrated into one system that provided the owners with real-time information.

Q&A with Jessica

What does above + beyond mean to you?
Providing exceptional client service by doing more than what is expected to help businesses achieve success.
What are some of your favorite things?
My favorite food is pizza, which I eat several days a week. I love going to the restaurant Sake 2 Me – my husband and I have a weekly lunch date there. I mostly listen to country music, and I love to read books. My favorite phrase is “let’s go” because it’s a fun way to show excitement.
What makes you unique?
I thrive off routines. I even eat the same thing for lunch day after day!
What do you enjoy most about your work at Adams Brown?
My coworkers and clients and the relationships that I have formed with them over the years. I work with some of my best friends!
What is your family like and what are some things you like to do together?
My husband, Jack, is a loan officer. As an accountant and banker, we lead an interesting life revolving around numbers! We have one daughter who is involved in many activities that we like to be involved in, too. We spend lots of time watching her play sports. When we all have some free time, we love to play games and sports as a family and attend FHSU sporting events.
