In a nutshell, what do you do?

I am a tax staff member at PSLZ LLP in Plymouth, MI. I do tax compliance accounting and return preparation for individuals, estates and trusts.

Why do you love what you do?

I enjoy the challenge of working with each client’s unique set of circumstances in regard to their taxes. I find the accounting field presents an exciting opportunity for me to apply the ever-changing tax law to a wide range of tax issues in order to assist our client’s needs.

What did you like most about Albion?

Albion helped me grow both academically and personally. The small class sizes and the accessibility of my professors was a huge help to me during my time at Albion.

How did Albion help you get to where you want to be?

The support and guidance from the Economics & Management department and the Gerstacker Institute helped get me to where I am now. While at Albion, I had the opportunity to be involved in several extracurricular activities, complete two internships, and complete all of the required coursework for the Certified Public Accounting examination – all in four years! Through these experiences, I gained the knowledge and the ability to approach new challenges with confidence.

For me Albion…

...is a place that has prepared me for the next phase of my life.
