Q. What do you enjoy about Public Accounting?
One of the best things about working in public accounting is the opportunity to work with a wide variety of small businesses and clients. I enjoy getting to learn about each client’s business and help them identify opportunities to approach accounting from a new perspective or enhance controls to help safeguard assets. I have also found that no single client experience is the same and I am always learning from the unique perspectives of client’s management teams and owners.

Q. Why do you like working at KWC?
In the Richmond office of KWC we have a very tight knit ‘family.’ Many of the employees have been working together for a decade or more and everyone really knows how to work together to achieve the best results for our clients.

Q. What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
I have two young boys and love spending time playing with them and attending an endless variety of activities together. I also enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen with new foods, flavors and methods.
