CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA)
I have been at CLA for three years, work out of the Oconomowoc office, and serve many clients in Milwaukee and all over southeast Wisconsin. As a licensed CPA I provide tax preparation and consulting services to the clients that I work with, and am dedicated to supporting their success by getting to know them and being a trusted advisor. In addition to the years of experience practicing tax, I also have a background in doing accounting work for various companies. As a result, I work with numerous clients to assist in their bookkeeping process and help organize their books. In addition to working with many commercial real estate clients to prepare their tax returns, I also work with clients to plan for tax implications from any sales or exchanges of property.
In 2012 I graduated from Trinity International University with a business major and an emphasis in both accounting and management. I was born in Rockford, Illinois but am a lifelong Packers fan. I played soccer in college and am an avid golfer.
