Dallas native, born and raised in the Richardson suburb, I completed my Masters in Professional Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin and I also obtained my CPA licensing the same year.

I worked over two years in public accounting with Grant Thornton, LLP where I specialized in advisory services in a range of clients in the oil and gas, manufacturing, and customer service industries. I also worked for two years as an operational and internal auditor and a crude accountant both at HollyFrontier Corp, a mid-sized refinery company.

At Embark, I’m excited to engage with new clients to both learn and to assist in helping clients find solutions to increase operational, financial, and reporting return. If you’d like to know more about me, check out my full profile on LinkedIn!

I am a constant pursuer of my faith, my family, and my friends. I enjoy making brisket and spending time giving back to the community at Solomon’s Porch, a downtown homeless ministry. I also love all things CrossFit, especially Olympic lifting, and I hope to be competitive one day.
