Why did you choose to be a CPA and/or advisor?
My first profession was as an engineer - this was back in the 80s - and the advice from family and coaches was to get an MBA. In that process I found I really liked accounting and decided to pursue that field and become a CPA.
What do you like best about helping clients?
My best clients have become friends, so being able to have a positive impact on their business, which is a significant part of who they are as a person and leader, is very rewarding.

Born in Houston, Texas and spent most of my life here.
