Jennifer Pachner, Controller, United Wireless


Jennifer has always had a knack for math, but when she first arrived at Fort Hays State University, it wasn’t her course of study. However, she couldn’t turn away from accounting. It came easily to her and she thought it was something that would benefit her and others throughout life.

Shortly after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in accounting, Jennifer started doing accounting and billing for United’s landline services. Over the years—20 and counting!— she took on more and more responsibilities. Today she serves as the Controller, where she oversees all of the company finances, plus the accounting and billing departments.

Her favorite part of working at United?

“The people,” she says. “I like the family-oriented atmosphere. Our customers and employees are our friends and neighbors.”

Jennifer grew up in Kalvesta, a farming community near Cimarron, and continues to give back to her alma mater, Cimarron High School, by volunteering in the booster club.

One of her biggest pleasures is spending time with family, and she can often be found camping or boating on the lake during summer.
