What brought you to Sioux Falls?

The Vucurevich School of Business, the First Premier Bank Student Teller Program and anticipated career opportunities.

What keeps you in Sioux Falls?

The small-town feel of the people, combined with the big-city opportunities, growth and amenities that it offers.

What’s your favorite thing about your job?

The opportunity to help and interact with talented co-workers and local businesses, while going into each day with the certainty that it will be filled with something completely different than the day prior.

How did you get connected to your industry?

My initial experience in the public accounting industry came through internships with Lamfers & Maas LLP before getting connected with Eide Bailly LLP at Meet Eide Bailly Day and an Eide Bailly internship, which eventually resulted in a full-time position in 2011.

Describe Eide Bailly in three words.

Trusted. Innovative. Community.

What’s your favorite way to give back to your community?

I’ve grown to really appreciate the content and opportunities that Junior Achievement of South Dakota brings to more than 50,000 local students annually and have really enjoyed the experience of being a Junior Achievement volunteer. It’s a lot of fun getting to experience the zeal and energy of the next generation by sharing information that will inspire and prepare them to succeed in a global economy.

What’s one business you’d like to see in Sioux Falls that isn’t here now?

P.F. Chang’s.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I expect to be doing much of the same as I am now: serving clients to the best of my abilities, striving to help them achieve long-term success and pursuing professional growth opportunities, while continuing to focus on the privilege I’ve been provided to shape the lives of the three great children that my wife and I have been blessed with.
