I started my career in banking in 2000 after a couple of years in audit with a Big 5 accounting firm. Since then I have had the opportunity to accumulate significant experience in credit, portfolio and relationship management, due diligence and business development. Along the way, I owned a non-medical senior care franchise. The experience I gained as a small business owner was invaluable. First and foremost, it gave me perspective on how small businesses get funding and my bank financing was possible because of the SBA. Needless to say, I am a huge advocate of the program and look forward to helping others through the financing process.
I have a Juris Doctorate (JD) from Marquette University Law School (2006) and Bachelor of Science (BS) in Accounting from the University of Minnesota (1999). I am a member of the State Bar of Wisconsin as well as the Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants. In addition, I am active in the Commercial Finance Association (CFA), Turnaround Management Association (TMA) and the Midwest Business Brokers & Intermediaries (MBBI).
I live in Brookfield, Wisconsin with my high school sweetheart and our two young daughters who are involved in competitive swimming and gymnastics. I love to play golf and try to play as much as my schedule (and probably more importantly, wife) permit and my wife and I try to get our family up to our hometown of Rhinelander, Wisconsin as much as we can.
