I’m Jennifer Boukari, the proud owner of Godiva Financial. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

Before I started my career as a tax professional, I worked three physical labor jobs to make ends meet and ended up on academic probation due to being exhausted from work. I then attended college full-time and earned my enrolled agent credentials, my bachelor’s in accounting, and my MBA in international business.

In 2018, wanting to blend my passion for helping others build wealth with my desire to be self-sufficient and realizing how valuable strategic planning and being proactive was. I started Godiva Financial and offered tax preparation and filing, bookkeeping, and behavioral budgeting. 

I started doing personal income tax returns and financial planning for my clients and rapidly grew professionally.

The part of my business I find the most enjoyable is my close client interactions. After making minor tweaks to their lifestyles, seeing them win and reach their goals is absolutely my favorite part.

My business philosophy is “do the work, put in the time, and the results will certainly follow.” The way I see it, integrity is core. Do right by the customers, and they’ll do right by you.

As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from the others is my personable demeanor and the fact I am easily approachable and relate to my clients.

I attribute my success to my never-say-die approach to life, positive reaction to adversity, and undying dedication to my customers.

My business success and the genuine benefits I know I offer my clients have given me immense satisfaction over the years and continues to inspire me to do more for my clients and my community. 

When I am not at work, I enjoy traveling and visiting new parts of the world. I like working out, relaxing on my couch with a good book, and trying out different margaritas.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things that matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.

If you or someone you know could benefit from my expertise in tax preparation, bookkeeping, or personal financial planning, I invite you to get in touch. I’m no stranger to financial hardships. I’ve made some poor money choices, and I’ve developed many excellent economic disciplines over time. Please visit my website at for more information.
