Work With Us









eanette Velasquez is a highly skilled and experienced accountant, bookkeeper, tax advisor, community coordinator, HR administrator, coach and more, with over a decade of experience in the non-profit sector. Despite facing numerous challenges, including being a single mother and becoming homeless just three years after graduating with an Associates degree in Accounting, Jeanette persevered through prayer and active strategizing to find a way to regain stability for herself and her daughter. This led her to discover the One Family Scholars program, which provided her with financial support, mentoring, and professional development opportunities to pursue her degree and regain housing. Ultimately, this led to Jeanette's success in the non-profit sector, where she continued to give back to her community by providing free tax services to students and founding Velasquez Tax & Business Services, which developed two VITA Tax Sites and assisted over 5000 Massachusetts families.

Jeanette's love for giving back and empowering those who are often at a disadvantage economically drives her to teach families how to actively take advantage of asset-building services and resources. Her motivation to seek change, betterment, and empowerment for all led her to establish long-term effective processes while simultaneously bridging organizational partnerships. Jeanette's origin story as a small business owner began when she saw the need to provide tax services and more to Massachusetts families, many of whom are at a disadvantage economically. She remains dedicated to giving back to her community and helping to bridge the wealth gap that threatens the economic future of many minorities.
