I learned the principal of Magis during my time at Rockhurst High School in Kansas City and it has served as my guidepost in all my endeavors since. I want to continue to push the limits of my talents to learn more, live more and give more. I earned a bachelors and masters degree in accounting from the Trulaske College of Business at the University of Missouri. I am a CPA in the State of Missouri. I spent the first several years of my career in public accounting. I have spent the last several years underwriting and managing commercial real estate and venture capital investments including an opportunity to sit on the board of directors for Bats Global Markets. Through this diverse background, I learned how I want to do business and treat people with integrity. I have a wide range of experiences and do not feel like there is a project too large or too small. I have a high attention to detail and interest in learning new industries, businesses and people. My focus is to help business owners get more out of their business by providing cash management strategies, business unit structuring and reporting, prospective business investment analysis, budgeting and financial reporting, vendor/receivable analysis and internal control design/implementation. Don't let accounting/finance be a burden, release its power and utilize the information in a more strategic and efficient manner to get more out of your business. I am passionate about connecting with people and using my skills and experiences to enhance their business operations which in turn enhances the community that we live in.
