Jen Danko, CPA, Principal

Jen joined Maner Costerisan in January 2023 as a principal in the Tax department. With more than 12 years of specialized skills and experience, Jen provides estate, trust, and tax consulting services to high net worth individuals and business owners.

Jen works closely with the firm’s wealth management division, Maner Wealth, to provide high net worth individuals of all ages with a holistic approach to financial and tax planning. She’s driven to help her clients achieve their personal and wealth transfer goals while minimizing tax consequences by creating synergies between their tax and investment advisors.

Jen joined Maner from a top-20 national tax and consulting firm, where she oversaw its East Lansing-based trust and estate practice. She was inspired to pursue a career in the industry by her father, an accountant who was her hero growing up. It brings her joy to play a role in helping her clients achieve their personal goals.

An active member of the Greater Lansing Estate Planning Council (GLEPC), Jen served as the president of the board from 2022-2023.

A graduate of Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Jen lives in East Lansing, Michigan, with her husband, Matt, and their two children, Ryan and Brooke. Outside of the office, she enjoys vacationing at Disney, spending time with her kids and running.

I live my life with a ‘work hard, play hard’ approach.

I enjoy my career, meeting new people, and working with clients, but also realize that life is precious, and my kids are only young once. We are blessed with the time and resources to enjoy adventures as a family and when we spend time together, we make memories that will last a lifetime!
