Jo Hardy joined Perkins & Co in 1990 and today is a senior manager in the tax department and a member of our Legacy Planning Practice Group. Her expertise includes management and tax advisory services for small business clients and individuals. She also draws upon experience gained from her years on the “other side of the desk,” where she managed the internal accounting duties for an Oregon-based service company.
Besides client work, Jo spends half the year overseeing the workflow for individual client tax returns. This means managing paper, people and processes. When Perkins prepares your personal tax return, Jo had a hand in it somewhere. When she needs to decompress from the deadline-driven work day, Jo retreats to her three acre garden in rural southeast Portland. Whether flowers, vegetables, processes or people, there’s nothing Jo can’t grow.
