I lead the firm’s not-for-profit practice and offer audit, tax, and consulting assistance to not-for-profits so that they can focus on their mission and their constituents. Leaders of behavioral health and social service organizations, religious institutes, private foundations, arts and cultural institutions, and private schools come to me when they’re looking for peace of mind. They appreciate the fact that I speak their language and understand their mission, and I admire their passion and dedication. Being able to help our clients increase the impact they have on their communities and constituents is something I find moving and rewarding.
My twin sister, who is also a partner at Plante Moran, and I are lifelong Detroit Tigers fans. We were at Comerica Park when Armando Galarraga pitched a near-perfect game, but the first-base umpire infamously robbed him of perfection. The emotion of that moment is why I love the game.
