Why did you join William Vaughan Company?

I joined WVC during a merger with a small CPA firm in Bowling Green and I can’t think of a better firm we could have done this with. WVC has been able to provide the clients that carried over from the merger with a solid team, tremendous resources, and incredible depth.

What are you most passionate about in your work?

I love helping clients find great solutions to difficult problems and challenging situations.

What has been your most rewarding client experience?

I’ve found great satisfaction helping with business continuation and succession — whether it is transitioning ownership to the next generation, selling to new ownership, implementing an ESOP, or some other strategy.

What makes William Vaughan Company different?

I am constantly amazed by the people in this firm. There are so many talented and smart people I can turn to in when I need assistance with an issue, or just need to discuss something.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I love long walks on the beach, thunderstorms, ND Football, and puppies!

What’s a fun fact few would know about you?

I used to love the feeling of jumping out of perfectly good airplanes and falling away at 120 mph. Yes, I used to be an avid skydiver.
