Chris Schroers

It was Chris’s high school teacher who originally inspired her to pursue the accounting field; her engaging teaching style had such a powerful impact that it has driven her career path ever since. Chris began her career with one CPA firm holding various positions within the firm for 25 years. She started as a tax assembler as she went to school and worked in accounting services and tax before steering towards the internal side of the firm as Controller and later, Firm Administrator. She moved to another firm where she worked for 9 years as their Firm Administrator and was then promoted to Director of Operations.

Chris’s passions are helping people and striving to make her company the best it can be. Her skills in firm management, strategic planning, HR, event planning, budgeting, and financial statements have aided in her success in this industry. When she isn’t overseeing the day-to-day operations of the firm, Chris enjoys spending time with her family at the cabin. She loves to travel and considers Hawaii her happy place. Her hobbies include pickleball, kayaking, working out, and paddleboarding.

Jodi Malmgren

When Jodi began her career in the legal industry nearly 30 years ago, she found herself gravitating toward tax law. “I have always enjoyed numbers, so to combine that with tax law is right up my alley!” she explains. After making the switch to public accounting by joining Froehling Anderson in 2006, Jodi quickly found her niche. As a Senior Manager, she uses her legal expertise and caring personality to guide clients through the complicated world of tax controversy. In 2010, she became an Enrolled Agent (EA), an elite status awarded by the IRS that qualifies her to represent taxpayers. She also focuses her practice on preparing taxes for professional athletes and high-net-worth individuals and helping manage their financial lives. She is also Lean Six Sigma certified.

In addition to serving clients, Jodi fulfills a key role in Froehling Anderson’s operations: managing staff and work flow processes, with the emphasis on client service. “We have a young staff,” she says, “so it’s exciting to be a part of their growth and development.” When Jodi’s not helping clients de-stress, she’s planning her next relaxing getaway. Her favorite way to wind down? Vacationing in Puerto Rico and at the cabin with her husband. They also enjoy spending time with their two grown sons, grandchildren and the family dog, Cooper, whom she refers to as “a very privileged springer spaniel.”
