WHO WE ARE : Join Janesville

Meet Jenny McCarthy, CPA Manager at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP and Membership Chair of JOIN Janesville Young Professionals Group

Tell us an interesting thing about yourself

I double majored in accounting and geography in college. Though I've made my career in accounting, I love to teach my young children about all of the things nature has to offer, especially here within the state of Wisconsin!

Why did you step up into a leadership position with JOIN Janesville?

I truly believe that there is a need in Janesville for a young professionals group such as JOIN Janesville, when I heard that one was starting up, I knew I wanted to be a part of it in some way.

What’s the most compelling thing you would like to see happen in the first year of JOIN Janesville?

I am excited to see the JOIN Janesville Young Professionals group (JJYP) energize young professionals to make business networking a regular part of their professional routine. If JJYP can then build on that momentum each month to bring together a diverse group of young professionals to grow networks, learn from each other, and give back, we have the potential to leave a lasting impact on the community in which we live and work.
