Zeb Smith, CPA

“Ascent is the climb to the top. I’m an avid hiker, runner, and hunter. Sure, all of these activities can be done alone but they are often more enjoyable when I surround myself with stronger people who share similar passions. It’s these people who push me to achieve more, be a better person and adviser, and climb higher.”

“We are accomplished dreamers, just like our clients, who have dedicated our lives to helping others achieve dreams and accomplish fiscal responsibility.”



Jenny Goessel

Jenny started her accounting career in 2001 as the bookkeeper for an architectural design studio in San Francisco, CA. Jenny has since provided bookkeeping and advisory services for a number of industries including non-profit organizations, professional services, health services, property management, construction, retail, bars, and restaurants.

Jenny was a financial director with an international consulting firm as well as a national non-profit organization. Jenny is a registered tax return preparer which gives her that added edge when performing bookkeeping and advisory services (but only until she can keep her bees, wander the woods, and tell stories for a living).

Jenny has earned a reputation for competence, integrity, and humor. Jenny has called Durango home since 1994.
