Jennifer Steckly

CPA, CA – Vice Chair

Growing up in an entrepreneurial household, Jennifer learned to live and breathe business. She started her bookkeeping training in her mother’s company when she was only 12. There she formed a strong work ethic and developed her talent for speed, accuracy, and insight regarding client files. After two years of science and a year of commerce at MacEwan University, Jennifer moved to the University of Alberta, achieving her B.Com, Accounting Major. Her CA designation soon followed. As a consistent high achiever, Jennifer combines her in-depth knowledge of bookkeeping processes with her accounting education and experience. The six partners at her previous firm often expressed appreciation for her ability to accurately and quickly complete complex and difficult files. That, combined with her excellent client relationships enabled her to move quickly from articling student to accounting associate to manager.

Ida Colby, Jennifer’s business partner, finds it exciting to work with Jennifer: “I couldn’t ask for a better partner. She is passionate about everything she does. Her knowledge of accounting and auditing is second to none. Jennifer may be young, but she has so much practical experience; it shines through in all aspects of her work. She has an engaging way with clients and provides wonderful professional advice when needed.
