When did you start employment/will you start at GJM? April 19, 2021

Why did you choose the accounting industry? Originally I entered the accounting industry because of my love for numbers, specifically baseball statistics and I believed that would be a good fit for my career. However, over the past few years I have been fortunate to merge my passion for technology with my understanding of accounting principles.

What do you like best about accounting? I enjoy the accounting industry because it is ever changing. Businesses are facing unique challenges each year, that is especially evident this year as COVID has shown to present its own distinctive challenges. We as public accountants are met with the task of helping our clients navigate through these business changes and interruptions as seamlessly as possible.

Are you from the Toledo area originally? If not, where are you from? I grew up in Mount Blanchard, OH and moved to Toledo in 2015 to attend the University of Toledo.

What do you like about living in Northwest Ohio? Family, Friends, and the opportunities available in the community.

Anything you would like to share about your past professional experience? I’ve been fortunate to have experience working with a big four accounting firm in Detroit, as well as have spent some time working at Masco.

Do you have any pets, hobbies, family? My hobbies include working out, golfing, tennis, and I enjoy spending time at my local shooting range.

Favorite song or music? My favorite song of all time would be too difficult to choose so I’ll say country music is my favorite genre.

Favorite book or movie? My favorite book would be ‘Satisfied’ by Jeff Manion. My favorite movie is the Jurassic Park Series.

Are you involved in any community organizations, do any volunteer work? I am not currently involved in anything but would love to get involved in something soon.

What is something people may be surprised to find out about you? For anyone that has or will ever golf a round with me, they may be incredibly surprised to find out I have hit a hole in one... Every broken clock is right twice a day!  

Anything else you’d like to add? I am eager to begin this new journey with the firm and am excited about what the future holds!
