You’re a Staff Accountant at ShindelRock–tell us about what you do for clients.

I work with clients, both businesses and individuals to prepare tax returns, complete audits and reviews, and help clients to prepare for the coming year with tax projections and planning.

What do you like about your job and the work you get to do? 

I enjoy working closely with clients, listening to their needs and then delivering in excess of their expectations.

You’re relatively new to ShindelRock?  What did you like about the firm and its culture that made you decide to join?

During the interview process with ShindelRock, I was supremely impressed with the atmosphere that was being presented by all the partners and staff that I had the opportunity to interact with. ShindelRock was presented to me as a place more like a family that a group of individuals. The open door policies, the willingness to teach and mentor and the opportunity for growth were all things that drew me to ShindelRock, and after four months I can attest to the fact that the firm has delivered on all of it promises.

What is your background, educational and professional? 

I attended Western Michigan University and graduated in December 2009. Following graduation I worked for a large national firm in their tax department. From there I worked in a small firm in southwest Michigan, specializing primarily in audits of governmental and non-profit entities.
