Jackie Melinger

Director of Personal Bookkeeping Services

Jackie leads the personal bookkeeping service line for Strategic Wealth Partners. Her team of Client Advocates help to simplify their clients’ personal financial management by taking care of many day-to-day responsibilities that come with running a home.

Over the years, Jackie has always managed the finances for her businesses as well as her household, and she has helped numerous family members and others with their budgeting and organization. In 2018, Jackie and her husband, Michael, acquired My Personal Bookkeeper (formerly known as The Sprau Advocate Group, LLC) after seeing firsthand the value these services have brought to others. In October 2023, My Personal Bookkeeper joined forces with SWP. Jackie believes the team’s balance of warmth and professionalism inspires trust and makes a welcome addition to the lives of their clients.

Outside of the office, Jackie enjoys spending time with her husband and three daughters.
