Q. What do you enjoy about Public Accounting?
I enjoy providing guidance to clients and helping them make the most financially sound decision for their particular situation.  Additionally, rules and regulations are always changing, so I enjoy the challenge of staying current on these changes, and then being able to apply the changes to my clients’ strategies and compliance objectives.

Q. Why do you like working at KWC?
I enjoy the team oriented work environment at KWC.  I believe that KWC values not just their employees career ambitions, but also their personal goals outside of the office.  KWC provides employees the opportunity to have a great work/life balance through their policies, which includes allowing employees to have flexible work schedules.

Q. What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
I am a big DC sports fan, so I enjoy following the local teams and attending their games. Additionally, I enjoy working out at the gym, playing basketball, golfing, and spending my leisure time with friends and family.
