I grew up in Malcolm, just 12 miles away from the Nebraska campus. My family had a long and proud history of graduating from Nebraska, and I wanted to continue that tradition. As one of the top universities in the country, I knew the university offered fantastic academic programs and experiences that would help prepare me for a successful career in accounting.

During my time at Nebraska, I met many of my closest friends. We spent a lot of time together, in and out of class, and I still keep in touch with several of my classmates.

Following graduation, I started at BKD, LLP where I am currently a senior manager with a focus in the financial institutions and manufacturing and distribution industries. I married my high school sweetheart, Jonathan, customer engagement manager at Cornhusker Bank, and we have two kids – Hayden (5) and Bryn (2).

It’s important to me that I stay involved with the college that helped set me up for success. One way I’ve done that is by serving on the School of Accountancy Junior Advisory Board. Being part of the new opportunities and positive changes happening in the SOA is rewarding. I have truly enjoyed collaborating with other professionals to provide practical insights to help current students have a smooth transition after graduation. I’ve also served as a guest speaker in several classes, which allows me to share my story and insights with students – something I know that I valued when I was in their shoes.

In terms of monetary donations, I urge graduates to give back when they are able. Many of the great things happening in the College of Business are made possible through alums giving back. From sending students to conferences and competitions to providing assistance for graduate teaching assistants who help professors with research, case studies and other classroom efforts, the money we provide enriches the student experience and helps prepare them to lead the future of accounting after graduation.

There truly is no better place than Nebraska. Go Big Red!
