Jessica Fine is starting with the FSI team this year. She recently went back to school to get her teaching credentials at UNC Asheville. Prior to that, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of Arkansas where she majored in French and minored in math and international business. She also received a Masters in Business Taxation from the University of Southern California. Jessica has spent the last 17 years in public accounting and was a tax partner for the last four of those years. Her client base was primarily international private equity firms, so she got to puzzle through exciting and challenging international tax issues. She has always loved numbers and math and can’t wait to share that passion with her students. When she isn’t learning more about math (because there is always more to learn), she likes to play the piano, garden, and play fetch with her dog Kali.
