In college, Jen Leppek knew one of the most important decisions in her life was to pick a profession she could really dig into. As an honor roll and Dean’s List student with an affinity for math, Jen realized Accounting was the career for her. She worked as cage cashier while in school and was hired by a small public accounting firm straight out of school. Once that firm grew into a larger CPA firm, she decided to embrace a new opportunity and joined the progressive team at Donovan.
Tracy Husbands knew from the moment he started building forts in his parents’ living room that he loved to construct things. We’re not talking a blanket fort here—Tracy nailed walls into the hardwood and cut up the coffee table to use as a roof. In his 40 years in the building and remodeling trade Tracy has built dams, bridges, water-treatment plants, more custom homes than he can count, and has been named Oregon Contractor of the Year. His favorite part of the job? Taking someone’s dream, putting it on paper, and then making it real.
