"You really must like people if you want to be good in this field. We spend a lot of time meeting and talking with clients and giving advice. That old traditional ‘nose in book’ view of accountants is not the case anymore… that’s not today’s accountant.”
Jennifer joined Wilkinson in 1979 as a CA student and is now one of the partners who lead the Kingston office. She is also responsible for mentoring of staff and derives great pleasure from seeing a student’s progression and success.
Focusing mainly on small to medium sized businesses, not-for-profit organizations and professionals such as health care providers, Jennifer’s dedication to client service goes beyond merely helping businesses run more efficiently and minimizing taxes. She is often a financial sounding board and spends a great deal of time on overall business advice, planning and direction, all of which offer her clients financial peace of mind.
Jennifer is interested in establishing long-term relationships with clients; she has been with a number of clients for over thirty years - working towards their financial success from the very beginning - and is now overseeing the succession to the next generation.
In addition to helping clients achieve their financial goals, Jennifer devotes a large amount of her time to community service. She has served on the boards of the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation, the Kingston General Hospital Foundation and the Providence Care Foundation, and was a member of the Board of Governors of St. Lawrence College. Currently she is on the Board of Directors of Providence Care.
