I was born in Alberta and grew up on a grain farm near Carbon, a small community about 130km north east of Calgary. I moved to Edmonton in 1996, then graduated from the University of Lethbridge (Edmonton campus) in 2000, with a Bachelor of Management (with distinction) with a major in accounting. I began my career spending nearly 5 years with a national accounting firm in downtown Edmonton. The next 6 years, from 2005 – 2010, I was employed in large public companies, a private equity company, and a privately held investment company. In January 2011 I began considering my next step, and on April 1, 2011 registered Jeff Bender Professional Corporation to begin providing my tax and accounting services.

I love the opportunity to work with numerous small businesses and individuals, helping to reduce their tax and accounting stress.
