We are not your typical accounting team.  We enjoy long walks along the beach, good pink drinks and anything orange.  Feel free to crack a joke with us... we will likely laugh, provided that it is funny.

Scott Jensen

Senior Tax Smarty Pants

Scott is a Colorado Springs native. He studied music education and saxophone (and accounting, of course) at CSU before embarking as a band teacher.  After years of teaching, he left the traditional classroom to master the world of business and public accounting.  Scott served as account manager and tax specialist for new businesses, high-net worth families, and everything in between.  He has assisted with asset management, business planning and development, and defending clients in front of the IRS.  In 2021, Scott and Brian Werner hit it off after an introduction and ultimately determined their powers combined could create a larger impact on the small business community.  
 
Scott continues to practice with the heart of a teacher with small businesses and individuals alike – working to help them understand how they can use their accounting and tax planning as a powerful tool to help them reach their goals in both business and life! When Scott isn’t working with members or researching opportunities under new tax updates, he enjoys meeting new people in the community, spending time with family, and getting out with his ‘retirement age’ yellow lab, Aria.

Samantha Stender

Administrative Rockstar

Samantha, A.K.A. Sam, was born and raised in a small town in Minnesota (we’re talking 350 people with no stop light small). After moving to Colorado Springs in 2013, Samantha has spent a majority of her career working for non-profits in an operational capacity. While connecting with people is Sam’s favorite thing to do at work, she also loves improving the process, checking things off her list, and helping the team get to where they are going. She is often referred to as a “jack of all trades” and is willing to hop in wherever to reach the end goal!

 

As a homebody, Sam enjoys cooking with her husband (also named Sam) and watching new TV shows. If she isn’t at home, you can usually find her at the local Goodwill, laughing with her friends, or exploring new cities and the coffee shops they provide. To get on her good side, bring her an iced Vanilla Latte when you drop by the office!

Kim Jones

Senior Tax Guru

We are thrilled to introduce you to our new tax guru, Kim Jones! Kim joined our firm in 2021 after moving here from Casper, Wyoming so her adorable and smart 9 year old grandson can attend the school for the Deaf and Blind. We knew from the first moment we connected with her, that she would be a wonderful asset for our clients.

 

Quick as a whip, full of crazy ideas, and a lot of laughs, Kim has been in the tax and accounting world for over 30 years and has a Master’s in Accounting. She grew up an Army brat, loves Disney collectibles and her guilty pleasure is Kraft Mac & Cheese. Kim is excited to make Colorado Springs her home and to call BRW Tax & Accounting and HR Branches her home.
