I am from Austin, TX and earned my Bachelors in Accounting and Masters in Professional Accounting from the University of Texas.

After graduation, I spent the first three years of my career with PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Advisory services. I then spent almost four years at 7-Eleven performing traditional internal audits, SOX compliance and financial planning.  Most recently, I worked with Alon USA doing traditional internal audit and SOX compliance. If you’d like to know more about me, check out my full profile on LinkedIn!

Here at Embark, I look forward to leveraging my broad accounting, finance, and audit experience from PwC, 7-Eleven, Alon to help our clients implement solutions that meet their needs.

Outside of work, I spend time with my family and I usually have a camera in hand. I have been known to build things around the house (including a manual Polaroid camera affectionately named "The Franken-roid") and do remodeling projects from time to time.
