Originally from Durham, North Carolina, I attended Appalachian State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Recreation Management and a Master of Science in Accountancy.
I spent 6+ years at EY in the assurance practice. During my audit tenure, I served both public and private sector clients, primarily in the manufacturing and consumer products industries, as well as telecommunications, technology, and retail. While in audit, I served as a regional lead in implementing the use of data analytics tools and strategies to increase audit efficiency and facilitate a more risk-based audit approach. As a manager in the audit practice, I gained experience leading large teams towards digital implementation, participating in the development of updated audit enablement, and facilitating firm-wide trainings. I served numerous clients where I actively collaborated with contacts to provide enhanced client service, such as implementing new accounting standards, researching and providing advice on technical accounting guidance, developing data analytic solutions to provide detailed client insights, and leading presentations to enhance relationships with internal audit.
Given the nature of the relationships I developed in Big 4, I sought to join a boutique firm that focused on developing business relationships and providing growth to clients. I found that TBH fosters an environment that instills key principles into their approach to client relationships. Through this, I viewed TBH Consulting to be the best fit for my personal and professional development.
When I’m not serving clients, I spend the majority of my time training and working with local athletes on rehab and injury recovery. I played collegiate football at Appalachian State and continue to play recreationally in the Arena and Semi Professional circuits. I stay busy with my family and dog, exploring new interests, and travelling at every opportunity.
