I grew up in Appleton, WI. My husband and I are high school sweethearts. We met at age 15 and recently celebrated our 20th anniversary. I was fortunate enough to be able to be a stay at home mom for about ten years.
While my children were small I decided to pursue higher education. I started working on an Associate’s Degree in Accounting at Fox Valley Technical College, which I obtained in 2006 and decided to keep on going. I earned my Bachelor Degree in Accounting from Silver Lake College in 2009. I began working for Lon Mishler in February of 2008 as a part-time tax preparer and was hired on full time soon after. He offered me wonderful flexibility as a new working mom and incredible career opportunities. I was encouraged to pursue a Certified Financial Planner CFP® Certification, which I completed in June of 2011 through the College for Financial Planning.
Role in the Firm
I am a partner in the firm. I manage the tax department along with advising our clients on their accounts.
Outside of Work
My husband and I have two children – a son in college and a daughter in high school – that we love to spend time with whether it be camping “up north” or hanging out at home. We enjoy trout fishing together on the Little Wolf River. I love to read and am a huge fan of Stephen King. We also love to take long walks with our dog, Murphy, and have recently discovered a passion for travel.
