ty cotter, CPA*

Senior Associate

I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and moved to Dallas, where I was able to play soccer for the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) NCAA soccer team. While at UTD I graduated with degrees in accounting and was able to become a Teaching Assistant within the accounting department. After college, I began my career at Deloitte in the Dallas audit practice.

While at Deloitte I gained a greater understanding of accounting and management processes that helped me really start to connect the accounting and management functions of a business. However, during my time in public I very quickly realized that I wanted to add a greater value to the companies I served by helping implement the functions and processes, instead of just auditing them. During this time of realization, I was introduced to Embark where this idea had become a reality.

I’m passionate about helping businesses, adding real value, and problem-solving within a team environment. At Embark, I am thankful that this is an everyday opportunity. At the end of the day, my goal is to add value to the clients we serve in whatever way that may be.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife exploring new places and visiting US National Parks. I have put my faith in Jesus Christ and am thankful everyday for the grace I have been shown.
