I have over 19 years of experience assisting clients with tax and accounting services. I am known for my expertise in the manufacturing and distribution industry. I specialize in internationally active businesses, such as portfolio companies of U.S.-owned companies with foreign subsidiaries, foreign clients with inbound and outbound transactions, private equity groups, and family businesses. My clients range in size, from smaller, middle-market organizations to companies in the $1 billion range. I serve as a resource for their tax consulting, compliance, and planning needs.
After receiving my M.S.T. from Walsh College, I joined Plante Moran because of its people-first attitude. The culture here encourages collaboration among different offices and professionals, and I’m proud to be a part of that. An unexpected benefit of my position is seeing the curiosity that young staff bring to the office every day. It’s rewarding to teach them a concept and, even over the course of a week, see them start to understand it; over a longer period, you see them really enjoying the career and its challenges.
I’m a member of the AICPA and the MICPA. My professional career and my kids keep me busy. In my free time, I play on basketball and softball leagues.
