We recently moved to a home on five acres, which includes a chicken coop. We now have four silkie chickens named Blanche, Pearl, Ellie, and Sunny.

Partner, CPA


As a leader in the firm’s assurance practice, I specialize in serving technology, automotive and higher education clients. With over 20 years of experience, I consult with several of the firm’s larger and more complex clients. Many of my clients are internationally active, both within and outside of the United States, with operations across the globe. I also work extensively with private equity funds and their portfolio companies, assisting them with acquisitions, entity structure, integration, and buy- and sell-side due diligence to help them grow and become best in class.

As the office managing partner of our Macomb office, I focus on developing and growing the staff in this location. It’s an aspect of this job I really enjoy. In fact, I’ve received our Wentrack Staff Mentorship Award (which honors those who personify the characteristics of outstanding staff development) and the firm’s Morrison Award (recognizing the selfless spirit that characterizes the firm’s culture). It’s both humbling and gratifying to be acknowledged for my commitment to supporting others.

One of my favorite things about Plante Moran is our “We Care” philosophy. It isn’t just a saying — we practice what we preach. As a professional and a parent to three children, I want others to know this firm supports a work/life balance. It’s one of the reasons I’m the Women in Leadership office champion for Macomb.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and kids, especially at our family cabin. I also love to play volleyball and basketball, and I’m an avid dog lover.
