How I help . . .

I strive to build strong relationships with my clients and understand their personal and business financial needs. Establishing these robust relationships helps foster collaboration and enables me to provide the best service possible. With a comprehensive understanding of my clients’ objectives in mind, I help them develop and execute sustainable strategies to achieve their goals.

I am privileged to work with a variety of clients. As a leader on our nonprofit team, I help clients navigate compliance and enabling them to focus on their mission and vision. My work on the medical and dental industry team provides opportunities for me to assist clients with a variety of tax and business consulting as well as long-term growth or succession planning. I thoroughly enjoy and value the privilege of helping my clients set and reach their goals.

“I am always up for a challenge, and that has served me well in both my personal life and career path. When I'm not in the office you can find me exploring Wichita, coffee in hand.”
