Jenni M. Huotari

The Eide Bailly experience focuses on people first. We're committed to our clients and our people, working with businesses and individuals to achieve success while hiring, developing, and retaining talented and ambitious people who share the same commitment to our clients.


Jenni is a numbers nerd who helps small and mid-sized businesses grow. She leads a team of dedicated professionals who work with business clients to better understand their financial picture and make educated and strategic decisions for their companies.

When you work with Jenni, you can expect a partner who will arm you with high-quality financial information to better operate your business and make the right decisions. She's a geek for business operations and financial statements who can help anyone understand their financials.

When she's not at work, Jenni is keeping up with all things sport-related or chasing her three kids around. But she is a numbers nerd, so she's probably working on a spreadsheet, too.
