Get to Know Jennifer 

Jennifer Lehman joined Hantzmon Wiebel in 1997. Before becoming the Firm’s Chief Executive Officer in October 2017, Jennifer served as the Firm’s Chief Operating Officer for 10 years. She is a co-partner-in-charge of employee benefit plan audit practice. In addition, she works with high-net-worth individuals and a variety of their businesses, including providing advice on human resource matters and strategic planning issues. 

She enjoys working with clients, serving the community, and spending time with her family. Jennifer’s favorite pastime consists of bringing friends and family out to Lake Anna for a day of activity, such as boating, grilling, watching the sunset on the water, or attending a live music performance. When she is home, she takes joy in snuggling her cat, Sheldon. But not all of her vacation time is spent locally; Jennifer also likes to get away and visit beaches around the world.
