An active member of both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants, beginning my career at one of the Big Four public accounting firms as an auditor and working my way up to Senior Assurance Associate.
I enjoy seeing the process of physical construction that begins long before building phase with the financial modeling and accounting to make it all a reality.
While at Calvin University I received multiple letters in Track and Field, specializing in shot put, hammer, and discus, spending two seasons as team captain.

I drink at least two gallons of milk a week while I continue to train and compete in discus with a past Olympian trainer.
One goal of mine is to qualify for the 2024 Olympic trials with a distance throw of 60 meters. 5 meters to go! Yet, frankly eking out the win in my 2022 summer softball league was also pretty thrilling!
