Business: Eide Bailly, LLP
Job title: Senior Tax Manager
Why are you working in this industry? I love math which led me to the accounting profession! By being an accountant, I get to help business grow while using my love for numbers.
What are three daily habits that have helped you to become successful? Lists, coffee, and making time for family
What is an accomplishment that shaped your career? Getting my CPA license opened doors in the accounting field beyond having an accounting degree. It has allowed me opportunities that wouldn’t have otherwise been available.
What was your first summer job? My first summer job was lifeguarding at the local YMCA where I grew up in Irving, Texas.
What do you want to be doing in 10 years? In 10 years, I hope to still be helping business thrive and succeed in our community. My wish is that I see some that I have helped as start ups be strong pillars in their industry in our surrounding areas.
Where will we find you enjoying your hard-earned time off? In my time off, you will find me either playing with my son or enjoying a good book with a glass of wine. My son loves to play outside and we spend as much time soaking up the sun as possible, but when I find some down time I love a good mystery novel.
