I grew up near South Bend, Indiana, so I’m a lifelong Notre Dame football and basketball fan. I’m also a formerly-tortured Chicago Cubs fan.

As a partner with Plante Moran’s financial services group, I specialize in auditing private equity funds, venture capital funds, and other alternative investment funds. I also assist clients with audit compliance needs and provide guidance on investment company accounting best practices and internal controls improvement. 

Around the office, I’m known for being responsive and committed to helping others grow and maximize their potential. Clients appreciate that I’m willing to listen and I provide service that goes beyond deadline-driven compliance needs.

I’m very proud of how our investment company and private equity practices have grown. They’re widely recognized throughout private equity circles and serve some of the most well-known industry names in the Midwest.

I regularly speak in front of client governance bodies regarding industry developments and best practices. I’m a member of the Illinois Venture Capital Association and the AICPA. I received my bachelor’s accounting degree from the University of Notre Dame and my M.B.A. from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I also belong to the University of Notre Dame Alumni Organization and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Alumni Organization.
