No two clients are the same. Each one presents an opportunity to develop strategies unique to their situation, which makes every day different. The relationships, the variety, and the challenge are what makes this work worth doing.

She also has expertise in gift and estate tax compliance, and personal financial planning including charitable giving, education funding and retirement planning. In addition to serving clients, Jean is also a member of the BNN Women’s Committee.
