Meet Jill DiSalvo
Senior Accounting Manager
Jill grew up in the accounting world, helping with administrative tasks as an early teen in her father's CPA firm in Meredith, NH. Her career was for several years in the commercial and residential lending and construction loan market. Her father Pat had also been for some time developing residential and commercial real estate projects, when in the 2008 financial crisis the real estate market collapsed. Jill together with Pat and her brother Scott, quickly shifted gears and set up DiSalvo & Associates PLLC in December of that year.
In the midst of the 2008 financial crisis and setting up DiSalvo & Associates PLLC, Jill was going through a divorce while raising her son and daughter both under the age of two. Her understanding of the demands of juggling career and family life is the driving force behind her unique holistic offering to her clients. From an early age Jill had a keen interest in holistic and natural forms of healing and that passion has led to the creation of Frequency 432, LLC DBA Financial Frequency. Frequency 432 refers to the frequency at which music is more harmonic and pleasant and therefore more relaxing for the body and mind. Financial Frequency blends the well-being of body and mind with the financial wellness of Jill’s clients.
Jill strives to maintain the work-life balance she wishes to see for each of her clients. She has overseen and been instrumental in the success of DiSalvo & Associates LLC while raising her son and daughter. She is proud to see her son blossoming into a baseball enthusiast while her daughter is a budding acro dancer and tennis player. Jill loves travelling, hanging out with friends, attending concerts and music festivals with her fiancé, Andrew. Jill practices daily yoga and transcendental meditation.
