Owner Spotlight: Jeanette Siegel CPA, CGA
I’m Jeanette Siegel CPA, CGA, proud owner of Jeanette Siegel CPA, GGA. Before I start my story, I want to assure my clients that I am ready for the 2022 tax season; to prepare, tune-up, and finalize your 2021 yearend books and taxes. New software and training are in place and we are ready. I look forward to working with you all again this year.
By sharing my story, I hope you will get to know me better.
I have always excelled at number crunching and this led me into the accounting profession. After my initial studies I started working for a public accounting practice in North Battleford. Two years later, I moved back to my hometown of Spiritwood and worked as an accounting technician for a chartered accountant. While gaining valuable experience I also continued studies to earn my qualifications for my professional designation.
Over the years, I have had clients who obtained bookkeeping and income tax services from non-professionals. Most of these bookkeepers or tax preparers had no formal education and offered no protection for the client if issues arose. It inspired me to make a difference in people’s lives by providing independent expertise backed by training. Shortly after receiving my Certified General Accountant designation I ventured out into my own public practice.
My first office offering services as a sole practitioner fifteen years ago was upstairs at my husband’s business. It did not create the right impression for clients who wanted to meet with me. So, three years later, I bought a spacious office conveniently located on Main Street in Spiritwood.
Over the years, my team has grown to five people. Their experience and dedication help to get things done right. Trained and reliable support staff are essential.
I enjoy mentoring my team and promote an environment of continuous learning. The only dumb question is the one not asked. My goal is to render empathy, create organization from chaos, and offer clarification for clients.
I always offer honest advice and believe what sets me apart is my integrity and ethical values. My practice follows the bylaws set out by the Chartered Professional Accountant Association rendering guidance to accountants and protecting the public.
I attribute my success in part, to having a friendly work/client environment, being compassionate and helpful, all the while maintaining professional standards. I try to treat everyone equally and will always listen to other people’s opinions before expressing my own.
My strong-minded approach gets results and fills me with immense satisfaction when things come together. I can create happy families, happy clients and happy employees. It’s very rewarding to hear feedback from clients on how grateful they are to receive my accounting and consultancy services.
When I’m not analyzing financial statements, I love spending quality time with family. My hobbies include camping, gardening, yard beautification, sewing, reading, entertainment, cooking, and sports.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things that matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
