Jenny Lee Senior Acccountant

Jenny’s interest in accounting piqued when she started working as a staff accountant for two small family-owned businesses. She switched to public after completing her internship at PwC and worked as a public accountant within the financial services industry where she audited financial statements for various engagements. Her primary focus was regulatory compliance within the broker dealer realm for one of the largest hedge fund client in PwC’s Chicago practice but she also analyzed the balance sheet, profit and loss, and appropriate footnote disclosures to ensure proper financial reporting under US GAAP. During her time at PwC, she gained exposure to various tech innovation tools where she discovered her passion in leveraging these tools to increase efficiency and add value to her audit engagements. She was drawn to Propeller’s start-up client base and is excited to contribute to their success by adding that same value for these early-stage companies.

Jenny was born in South Korea and moved to the States at age seven. She graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Accounting and obtained her Certified Public Accountant license shortly after. Outside of work, Jenny loves to stay active outdoors and attend concerts as well as live shows including standup comedy. She completed her first ultra-marathon, running a 50K on the Chicago Lakefront and is currently working on training for her first triathlon. She hopes to complete the IronMan triathlon in the near future.
