I grew up in Kiel, Wisconsin. At Vesta, our culture is to go beyond the baseline compliance work, and become an active participant in our clients’ success. I find this rewarding and energizing, and I’m glad Vesta encourages out of the box thinking.

I’m an attentive listener & proactive thinker. When I hear of our client’s struggles or needs I marry them to successful solutions I’ve gained through past experiences, or relate new information I gain (on products, tax laws & credits, planning strategies) back to our clients I know could benefit from them.


I have 7 years of experience gained at Vesta, working in areas such as individual, business, and nonprofit tax, QuickBooks and accounting consulting, and tax planning. Throughout my tenure I’ve worked to learn more about our Sheboygan County client base, and I have also had the opportunity to work directly with so many people on our Vesta team. The combination of these has aided me in my success in my current role as a Project Manager: ensuring our clients receive high level service by our best fit professionals.

I care deeply about what makes up our firm: our clients and our people. My goal is to find solutions to best serve them.
