Jan Cooke is the Controller at Jeff Harris and Associates. She is a CPA and has an MBA in Finance from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. While in college, Jan was captain of the UNCG Women’s Rugby Club. She married her rugby coach, Bob, a few years later.

Jan grew up in Bethesda, MD, and still loves visiting her old haunts in Washington, DC. Through the years, Jan has worked for several companies in a variety of accounting and finance positions. Her final job in corporate America was managing a team of financial analysts for General Dynamics.
