Since Jessie Liu took a course in taxation law for her masters, she has been in love with taxation. While she credits having a great professor who made the course interesting, she also comes by her interest naturally as she has always liked math, even as a kid. “I like to play with numbers and build a picture. The end result is like magic or art. There is a natural balance to it.” Jessie is attracted to the importance of taxes and tax law for her clients. “Every client situation is so different. To do the best for our clients, it is necessary to understand each of their stories.” She feels a great sense of accomplishment when she finishes a return and knows she has helped a client save money.
Jessie began working with Hellam Varon in 2019 and was immediately drawn to the firm’s culture. “It felt different…warm. And I felt they respected me.” After spending four years with one of the Big 4 firms in Beijing and then doing financial analysis for a large tech company in Seattle, Jessie was looking for a smaller firm atmosphere where she could get to know everyone. And we feel lucky Hellam Varon fit the bill!
When Jessie isn’t working hard for her clients, she enjoys stretching her dancing and singing muscles. Weekends you might find her hanging out with friends and performing some karaoke or dancing to the beat of Latin or jazz music. Cooking is another of Jessie’s favorite pastimes. She especially likes preparing Asian meals with a side interest in baking bread and desserts. These she enjoys sharing over dinner parties with friends.
When Jessie relocated to Seattle, she found she loved the area. “It’s so green!” she exclaims. Her bright personality and positive nature has endeared her to her many friends here. She works hard and finds balance in her time with friends…just like she finds the magic and balance in working with numbers. Aren’t we fortunate to have her as a member of our Hellam Varon team?
