In addition to helping my clients with compliance-related matters, I provide practical, proactive business advice throughout the year to ensure they stay up to speed and ahead of the curve in this ever-changing environment. My goal is to be a valuable resource and universal advisor, not just an auditor or tax preparer.
Initially, I was drawn to this profession for the balance of it — accounting just seemed to make sense. After working in the field for over 20 years, I’ve grown to love the public in public accounting. I get to meet so many great people. My clients appreciate that I’m always looking for ways to help them succeed.
I’m a frequent speaker for the Michigan Governmental Finance Officers Association on a variety of governmental accounting topics, and I’m the lead presenter for its Back to Basics program — a three-day program covering the fundamentals of government accounting, budgeting, and public financial statements. I have a B.S. in business administration from Wayne State University.
