I grew up in the Show Me State and to my Dad’s dismay began college pursuing an art education. Within a short time and at the urging of my parents, I switched gears and changed to accounting, graduating from the University Central Missouri. Great decision! It has opened the door to possibilities I wouldn’t have imagined.
My career started in audit for a few years then led to the student loan industry where I took a really diverse role that involved coordinating audits, monitoring contracts and regulatory changes, as well as working in finance. I loved this role and the exposure it gave me to interacting with so many types of people in an ever changing industry.
Tulsa came calling and I fell into the accounting and financial recruiting world where I have met some of the best people and made this city my home. This work helped me carve out my spot in this market. It has allowed me to do what I love...meeting people, hearing their stories, building relationships, solving problems and impacting lives.
I now look forward to sharing Embark with the Oklahoma/NW Arkansas market and continuing to develop relationships with those who want to do things the right way.
I have an amazing teenage son who is active in sports and music. His commitments keep me busy. I also love creative cooking, reading, and always being active...I rarely sit still. I just began getting back into drawing and painting to keep the right side of the brain active too!
