Firm Partner, with KRP Since 1975

My parents farmed in Geneva, Nebraska. Dad consistently encouraged his five children to pursue a post-high school education for our own self-improvement and to expand our career opportunities.

I became interested in accounting when studying accounting principles my first year attending Creighton University.

My commitment to study accounting and to pursue a career in public accounting occurred during my second year at Creighton with encouragement from two uncles who were Certified Public Accountants in public practice.

I enjoy the variety of work we as Certified Public Accountants in public practice experience daily and the many client relationships, which over the years have become friendships.

Public accounting is a career committed to lifelong learning and building relationships.

Years ago the Firm's partners defined its mission to be the most successful public accounting firm in Sioux City. Every day we work to achieve the Firm's mission by placing clients' interests and welfare above our own through a culture of core values, integrity, competency, objectivity and commitment to excellence.

Our success can be measured by the communication, leadership, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills of our employees, the quality of services we provide our clients, and our clients successes.

Our firm and its members also work to be good Siouxland citizens, serving on various Boards/Committees and participating in community activities.
