Member Spotlight: Helen W. Igar, CPA

I have been a CPA since 1986, controller for a few companies for 10 years and a partner with Janssen & Igar, CPAs since 2000.  In 2012 I purchased the company.  We prepare financial statements and tax returns for small businesses of all kinds, nonprofits, trusts, and individuals.  I love QuickBooks.  I have mathematics and marketing degrees from USF.

I have been a member of BPW/St Petersburg-Pinellas for quite a while.  I have been the treasurer of my local for two years on two separate occasions and am currently their bookkeeper.  This will be my final two2-year term as BPW/FL Treasurer.

I got married to my husband, Mark Kligman, ten years ago as a clown.  It was a fun and colorful wedding (everyone came as clowns).  Between us we have four children and five grandchildren.  You may know my daughter Tricia Curry, who is also BPW/St Petersburg-Pinellas member and has a baby girl on the way in late August.

I have been involved with many nonprofits over the years.  Currently I am on the Board of Directors and Finance Committee for Florida CraftArt, a St. Petersburg organization that encourages Florida artists.

I am on Facebook as is my company.  You can find our website at:
