Certifications: HubSpot Inbound Sales

Meet Me:

Professional: I rejoined Accounting Department.com in October 2017, previously working with Dennis and Bill from 2005 to 2006. My career in business accounting started in 2001 when I quickly learned the difficulties business owners encounter in running their company. They were great at the “thing” they do but didn’t understand the financial lifeline to their success – accurate accounting and the usage of their numbers. I now wake up every morning sincerely wondering “what company am I going to save today?”

 

Personal: Now that we are empty nesters, my wife and I are discovering the reason we got together in the first place…….we love hanging with each other. I am very active as a member of our local Lions Club focusing on giving back to local charities. I volunteer as the Director of Volleyball for our town Parks & Recreation Department and I love to play golf hoping one day to be good enough to compete with Bill Gerber.
