Jeff Griggs: I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in accounting. After gaining training and experience with several International Accounting Firms, I opened my own CPA firm in 1992. In 1987 I earned the CFP (Certified Financial Planner) Designation while associated with a large Wall Street Firm to enhance my expertise in the wide array of financial products and how they can work together to solve my client’s problems. As a member of the management team of SCAN (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect), I’m active in doing good things for the community. I reside in Ft. Wayne, Indiana with my wife Sue. I love to read and roller blade.

Registered Tax Return Preparer

Christina (Chris) Rhodes: I started my tax preparation career in 1994 with Wells Fargo Trust Tax Dept.  While I was there, I prepared personal income tax returns for the trust clients.  I also prepared trust & estate returns for all of the Trust accounts.  Some of the accounts had employees, so those accounts needed to have payroll tax forms prepared which I did.  I was with the bank for 10 years until they eliminated the Department.  I joined H&R Block in 2004.  I continued my tax training by taking over 60hrs of tax classes each year.  My training includes farm returns, self employment stock sales, rental properties, health savings accounts and retirement.  I joined the Griggs CPA Firm in November 2012.  I look forward to helping people with their tax needs and getting the most back with their refunds.  I am married with 3 boys.  I enjoy watching my boys play wildcat baseball & PAL football.  I am a big NASCAR fan and like to watch NFL football.  I love spending time with my family.  Come see me so that I can help you with any of your tax preparation needs.

Suzanne Ankenbruck: My educational background is varied, and includes degrees in Radiologic Technology & Child Development.  I discovered another interest after taking my first tax class in 1981, and began preparing taxes part-time while working full-time as the administrator of a child care center.  I have taken tax classes every year to keep up with changes in tax laws, and since 2008 my only job focus has been preparing tax returns.  In 2012 I received the IRS designation of Registered Tax Return Preparer.

I live in Fort Wayne with my husband Dave, and enjoy reading, traveling, and singing in our church choir as well as with the Summit City Singers.  I have three grown children and a newborn granddaughter.
