Jaclyn Schmidt, CPA
Jaclyn graduated from Western Michigan University with her Master of Science in Accountancy and joined the Kalamazoo office of BDO USA, LLP where she spent the first seven years of her career. Realizing it was time for change, Jaclyn joined a publicly traded company where she spent three months working on employee benefit related accounting matters. Missing client contact and the entrepreneurial spirit of public accounting, Jaclyn joined BKC in December 2015.
Jaclyn is a leader of the assurance group at BKC and spends her time working with clients in need of compiled, reviewed or audited financial statements as well as consulting services. Jaclyn specializes in the audits of employee benefit plans and has experience with construction and manufacturing clients.
Jaclyn lives in Texas Corners with her husband, David and their daughter, Ava. She has two stepdaughters and cherishes the times they all spend together as a family. Jaclyn loves sharing in new experiences with Ava as she is full of wonder and joy at her young age. She also enjoys reading, being outside in the sunshine, good food and traveling. Jaclyn’s family enjoys weekend trips to Chicago and annual trips to Florida to enjoy Siesta Key beach and sunshine after tax season has come to a close.

“BKC is a great place to be! The people I work with are my friends. I am invested in their lives, in their families and their success. I enjoy spending time with them both inside and outside of the office. The clients we serve are grateful for the work we do and we are grateful for them. BKC fosters collaborative relationships with their clients and from that many great friendships have emerged. We buckle down and are a committed group during tax season. After tax season we all have great flexibility in making the profession work for our lives outside of the office.”
