Closely observing his father run a successful small business and working in the fields on his grandfather’s farm in Minnesota Pat knew early on he wanted to run his own business. You might say it’s in his DNA. Over the years he developed a passion for learning about and operating a small business.
After taking a bookkeeping class in high school Pat knew he wanted to be a CPA. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business from the University of Colorado at Boulder he started working for a national CPA firm in Colorado Springs in 1980. Pat started our firm in 1985 offering accounting, tax and consulting to individuals and businesses. We are proud to have several clients that have been with us from the start and that we have been able to assist generations of family members.
He is the proud father of Andrea, Allison and Brent. Outside of the office you can find Pat out running on the Santa Fe Trail or fishing in a mountain stream.
