Jessica Reuel

Senior Accountant

What are you surprisingly good at?

For some unknown reason I am very good at the arcade claw machines. One time, I played a giant claw machine and won two stuffed animals at once, a huge monkey and frog. It might be because I tend to be a perfectionist and I am very detail-orientated.

What are you most passionate about?

I am passionate about helping others. Growing up, I had a very good support system and that helped me to try my best at everything I did. From this, I always try to pay this service forward and help those out in the same way. I am also passionate about the performing arts. All throughout high school I was in different plays such as Guys and Dolls. This experience helped me to expand out of my comfort zones!

What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?

I am not currently involved in my community, but I plan to get involved at some point in the future. I believe that everyone should have an equal opportunity to take part in whatever makes them happy.

 What do you feel have been the most important successes in your life?

I graduated from the University of Waterloo, School of Accounting and Finance in June of 2017. I received a Bachelor’s of Accounting and Financial Management, Business and Finance, Honours Co-op.

If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?

Always be yourself …. unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman! I would like the ability to read minds and predict the future. This would help take some of the uncertainty out of things.

Anything else?

I like spending time with my family, friends, boyfriend and kitten. My boyfriend and I have recently taken it upon ourselves to improve our baking skills together. I can now make delicious treats and goodies. I am a big movie buff and love listening to music. I like listening to Marianas Trench and Adam Lambert. My favourite foods include pizza, french fries, chocolate and peanut butter.
