Received a full-ride academic scholarship to the University of Alabama where I received my bachelors of Arts in Philosophy. Though my studies I discovered my passion for accounting, I made a full 180 and gained a MSA in Accounting from Grand Valley State University, where I graduated Cum Laude.
Prior to the construction industry, I spent time in the public accounting world where I gained strong accounting technical skills. Due to my previous experience, I have a strong background in tax.
I was drawn to the construction industry because of the variety of projects involved, as many projects are different from the others. I bring along with me strong communication and customer service skills that will be sure to impress clients.
I love to throw live music events around Grand Rapids, some of these I even DJ at myself!
The great outdoors is where I love to be. I am an avid hiker and camper, which has taken me all over! 4 days straight hiking/camping in the Smoky Mountains, 7 days straight in the Rocky Mountains and 12 days straight in New Zealand!
I worked at a restaurant that was owned by an Iron Chef who beat Bobby Flay in competition.
