Tell Us a Little About Your Industry Expertise.
“My corporate clients are backed by private equity, family office, or investors who are focused on institutional growth and are looking for an advisor to assist them with the complexity that arises from scaling their organizations. Our ability to serve our clients beyond accounting in industries ranging from private equity, technology, manufacturing and distribution, real estate, healthcare, and others is truly exciting. Having expertise in accounting and reporting is table stakes— being a trustworthy resource to our clients sets us apart in the markets we serve.”
What is Your Definition of Success?
“I believe success is measured by the number of great people you surround yourself with. Watching our young professionals grow in their careers, from interns to managers, to partners, is such a wonderful indicator of success. Being able to support our clients and be a resource throughout their organizational life cycle is another measure of success. Throughout both, I am lucky enough to be surrounded by great professionals in my career who are working towards common goals, and at the end of the day, I am proud of that success.”
How Do You Like to Get Involved in the Community?
“I am lucky to have been involved with many organizations over the years to try and give back to my community. Being a parent has given me a focused opportunity to make sure I am also instilling the importance of community involvement with my kids. When I started my career, I was assigned as a junior board member to the American Red Cross. I appreciate what that organization taught me about supporting my community and trying to make an impact. Having served in the military, I focus on veteran advocacy groups and support for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I am humbled and inspired by those who dedicate their lives to helping others.”
Where is Your Favorite Place to go in Dallas?
“There are so many exciting places to see in Dallas, and one that always puts a smile on my face is Klyde Warren Park. The city of Dallas has done such a wonderful job making that piece of land a special place. From the green space to the food trucks and the entertainment to the kids splashing around at the fountains, seeing the community come together and enjoy the park is special.”
