Headshot of Jeannette Contreraz

I experienced a 180-feet free-fall on a RipCord, soaring through the air as my girls watched in amazement from below and my husband took a video — because he didn’t believe I’d actually do it!

Partner, CPA


As a leader in our tax group, I provide tax services to privately held, owner-managed and private equity-owned manufacturing and distribution clients, including those with both domestic and internationally active operations. I also serve as our office’s manufacturing and distribution industry tax champion.

When it comes to my clients, I operate with the belief that their needs will always come first. I aim to be responsive and have a laser-like focus on exceptional client service. In addition, I’m always looking for fresh and new ideas that will improve my clients’ business.

With more than 22 years’ experience, I’m proud of how I’ve developed a reputation as a working mother who balances the demands of my personal and professional life. I believe that my daughters will benefit from seeing me be successful in my career as a working mother — and I want to help other women achieve that level of satisfaction as well. This is why I’m invested in our internal Women in Leadership (WIL) initiatives.

I belong to the MICPA, the AICPA, the Michigan Women’s Tax Association, and the Automotive Women’s Alliance. I received my B.B.A. from the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

There’s not much downtime in our house. With two active children in softball and other activities, we stay busy. I also enjoy the outdoors with my family. We love exploring new places.
