Julleen Snyder, Partner, has been with Jacobson Jarvis since February, 1995. She has both practical experience within a not-for-profit organization, as well as a solid background in accounting and nonprofit auditing. This multi-disciplinary experience provides her with a unique perspective of the clients’ issues combined with the ability to implement timely, appropriate solutions.

I am proud of what we have built here at Jacobson Jarvis. It is a joy to work each day with such a dedicated team of professionals serving our not-for-profit community.

I have always enjoyed working with the JJCo team, both in my past and present jobs. Whenever I need some insight from an expert, Julleen is there for me and I don’t have to worry about being billed for it. That’s a great support for a nonprofit like us. Here at CHS, we think highly of them.
