Jennifer Allen has been an integral part of Hellam Varon since 2001. Jennifer decided she did not want to be just a number in a large firm and sought out a smaller accounting firm where the feeling was more like family. Hellam Varon was fortunate to be at the top of her list! As the shareholder in charge of our Business Support Services Group, Jennifer focuses on helping clients with high-level bookkeeping, payroll support, and business tax needs. She is an Enrolled Agent, certified as a QuickBooks ProAdvisor, and is the Xero cloud-based accounting specialist in the firm. Jennifer thrives on the challenges of helping her clients move towards new accounting technology. She loves the variety of the work, the relationships and the ability to really connect with clients in a meaningful way. “We never stop learning here at the firm. I like sorting through business and bookkeeping issues and helping find solutions that fit each client”, she comments.
Originally, from a small town on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Jennifer found her way to Seattle by way of Hawaii. She enjoys travelling to exotic places, such as Morocco, and hopes to include India on that list one day. Jennifer is not just hands-on at work. She spends much of her spare time on remodeling and decorating her house or refinishing furniture. Or maybe just kicking back with husband Reggie and their Pomeranian, Bear.
We all agree that Jennifer is the consummate positive, happy person! And she is happiest helping people. Whether working with a client or helping a colleague, you can always count on Jennifer’s thoughtful, caring and professional style to smooth the way!
