She joined the firm as a staff accountant and has risen through the ranks to her current position as principal in the McPherson office. Julie specializes in tax and consulting services and works in a variety of industries, including agriculture, manufacturing, medium to small businesses, oil and gas, real estate, and succession planning. Additionally, Julie serves as the manufacturing segment leader and as the firm’s Affordable Care Act specialist.
Growing up on a farm, Julie developed a strong work ethic and a passion for helping others. Looking up to her older brother, also a CPA, and taking high school accounting classes inspired her to pursue a career in accounting. Her hard work, passion, and dedication have served to develop her into a superb team member who leads by example.
Julie is proactive, adaptive, and has a genuine desire to develop relationships with her clients in order to best serve them as a business advisor. She recently helped a large manufacturing client qualify for research and development credits, resulting in tax savings of over $500,000.
Julie, the youngest of five children, grew up on a farm in Claflin, Kansas. She currently resides in McPherson, Kansas. She enjoys the small town feel of McPherson and the access to large town amenities. In her spare time, Julie enjoys working out, decorating, and keeping up with her favorite sports teams, especially those from her alma mater, Kansas State.
