Cynthia is a Senior Accountant at JAK, specializing in trusts, estates, and individual tax returns. She has a passion for transparent communication and making the complexities of estate and trusts become simple for her clients. Because of her diligence and focus, Cynthia is the go-to person for projects that require tedious attention to detail.
After moving back to Minnesota, Cynthia was recruited into a full-time position with JAK after inquiring about seasonal tax work. She had years of experience working for a CPA firm in Florida and has been engaged in tax season work for the past decade. She is a self-taught savant, learning the ins and outs of the tax industry as she expanded her career.
Outside of the office, Cynthia is a devoted caregiver to her family and is an ardent supporter for the advancement of education. When she has time to relax, she creates jewelry using freshwater pearls and scours the region for antiques. She collects Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain, a pastime that originated from her experience of living and working in China for over 15 years.
