About Me

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.

Education

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.
