Ben Jenkinson, Senior


Ben has lived in the Pacific Northwest his whole life, and early on realized that he wanted to pursue a career in business. After moving to Vancouver, WA from the Seattle area, he obtained a dual bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance at Washington State University, Vancouver in the spring of 2016.

After graduating, Ben had the opportunity to work for one of the Big Four Accounting firms in Portland, OR in their international individual tax practice. Before coming to for Opsahl Dawson, he also worked in industry accounting for a private company in Tualatin, OR. He is currently working to obtain a CPA license, and plans to have all four sections of the exam passed by the end of 2019.

Now that Ben is back in the Vancouver area, he plans to be more involved with the college of business and mentoring program at Washington State University, Vancouver. When not in the office, Ben is either out playing golf, disc golf, exploring the Oregon Coast, or hiking with his wife and three dogs. When he is staying closer to home, he enjoys trying different kinds of meat on the smoker grill or collaborating musically with close friends on his drum set.
