About Jennifer

Jennifer Kiehne joined the Rochester, MN, office of Hawkins Ash CPAs in 2014. In 2019 she became a Certified Payroll Professional (CPP)—a career accomplishment of which she is most proud.

Since beginning bookkeeping and accounting work in the late 1980s, Jennifer’s experience spans more than 30 years. Now as a senior associate she specializes in payroll processing and assists with quarterly payroll tax returns. In addition, she works with clients to determine sales tax and provider tax. She also performs work comp audits.

“I enjoy working with my clients, who range from farmers to restaurateurs and construction workers to chiropractors. The list is endless!”
