What are your superpowers – something you’re good at that others should know about?

Problem solving – I love challenges both big and small. Taking the small details and piecing together the big picture or looking at the big picture and breaking it down to its smaller components.

Accomplishment you’re proud of?

Obtaining my Bachelors of Science in Accounting from Grand Valley State University as a non-traditional student while working full-time and a present husband to support my wife and 3 small children at the time. Much of this accomplishment wouldn’t have been possible without my wife’s support and dedication to my goal.

Married to Claire Posthumus, have 3 children (2 boys Bryce and Christian, daughter Scarlett) and take care of 4 rescue pets (1 dog and 3 cats).

Outside of that I love to golf when I get the chance, technology, movies, Nascar and traveling to/learning about historic locations.

Working with a passionate team focused on the needs of the client while being encouraged to maintain a healthy work/life balance. I have also been blessed to work with some amazing business owners and value the relationships that have grown from it.
