Jennifer Clingan, CPA, Principal

“I work hard to understand my clients’ business—from more than just the accounting perspective.  My job isn’t to quote  IRS code, but to make IRS code and complex tax and accounting issues understandable and manageable so my clients can focus on growing their business.”

Jennifer has provided accounting, consulting and tax services to a broad range of industries since entering the public accounting profession in 1995.  She joined LSWG in 2002 and specializes in serving owner-managed businesses.  She especially enjoys working with new business ventures and is experienced in the estate and trust income tax area.  Jennifer is a graduate of the University of Maryland and Towson State University, where she earned bachelor degrees in accounting and English literature, respectively.
