President, Enrolled Agent

I earned my BA in Accountancy from Ferris State University.  After graduation I worked in the manufacturing industry for 5 years as a Production Scheduler and HR Assistant.  I have assisted my family with preparing their tax returns since 2004.

I’ve been a professional in the accounting and tax preparation industry since 2011.  My focus is small to medium businesses and individuals.  I am enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service.

I met my husband at college, and have lived in Holland since 2011.  I am thrilled to raise my children in this wonderful lakeshore community.

Tax Preparer

I earned my BA in Accountancy and Certificate in Forensic Accounting from Ferris State University.  I’m working towards my CPA.  I was born & raised in the Upper Peninsula. I worked at my parents’ feed mill for most of my life up until I moved for school. My mom is a CPA and the reason I wanted to become an accountant.  I met my spouse at college and we are currently in the process of remodeling our first home! My hobbies include spending time with friends and family, visiting the U.P., being outdoors, and boating.
