Jessica

Jessica Allen is a Partner at Allen + Koe, where she relishes the opportunity to learn about new businesses while engaging with a variety of people and projects. Her idea of a successful day is one where she’s helped a client accomplish their business or financial goals. With a prior career as a professional chef, she discovered that both occupations appeal to her focus on hospitality, genuine care for clients, and the opportunity to fine-tune recipes and processes for the tastiest and most satisfying results. In addition to her Culinary Arts Degree, she earned a BA in Business Administration from University of Washington Foster School of Business.

When not at the computer making sense of dollars and cents, you’ll find Jessica improving her Tai Chi skills, studying classical guitar, planning her next travel adventure, rooting for her beloved Mariners, or cuddling with her treasured kitty, Bean.
