Jennifer De Leon - Employee Spotlight


From a young age, Jennifer would reconcile her parent's bank account for fun. So naturally, it made sense for her to pursue the accounting field. After her introduction to KFW through a recruiting company, her attention was absorbed as she has able to combine her subtle interest in engineering with her career in accounting. Now with a three-and-a-half-year tenure, Jennifer is excited about getting our new accounting team fully trained and helping them become comfortable in their roles and responsibilities.

How did you hear about KFW?

"I heard about KFW through a recruiter when I was looking to leave my previous employer. One of the great things about being in Accounting is that I can jump to almost any industry and Accounting is just about the same.”

Before working at KFW, what was the most unusual or interesting job you've ever had?

"During college, I was a live-in nanny for a set of twin girls. I taught them how to read, write, add, and subtract and they taught me all of the words to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song. The twins are now juniors in high school and I still keep in contact with them."

What are your hobbies outside of work?

"On the weekends you can usually find me at church or a church-related event. During the week, I hang out with my pups, Charlie and Lucy. I’m also always planning my next vacation to Walt Disney World."

If you were not in accounting, what would you be doing?

"I would love to be a professional Walt Disney World vacation planner. I plan vacations for family and friends now, so it would be fun to do it full-time."

If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

Time travel. There are a few moments in my life that I would enjoy re-living, savoring the moment just a little more, and spending time with the people that matter.

Position: Assistant Controller
Years at KFW: 3.5 years
Favorite part about working at KFW: "There’s always something going on; whether it be an event, engagement activity, or a volunteer opportunity."

Jennifer's co-workers at KFW said the following:

“Jennifer has made KFW feel so welcoming for my first two weeks. She goes above and beyond for not only the Admin team but for the project managers and everyone at KFW.”
“I appreciate her diligence, detail, and her surpassing work ethic!"
