Why did you decide to specialize in assurance services?
“Assurance services allow me to use my experience and expertise to help people understand their business. Understanding what financials mean allows the business owner to make better-informed decisions — decisions ranging from their labor force, to the types of jobs they perform most efficiently and effectively, to the types of banking and bonding relationships that will best serve their needs. When owners can truly interpret their monthly internal reports, they can address problems as they occur and begin immediate corrections. I enjoy helping to be part of the growth process — providing proactive solutions and suggestions rather than reacting to problems at year-end.”
