After spending the first decade of my career at a large national firm, what attracted me to KSM is its focus on the northeast Indiana market, including its dedication to being here, being present, and making an impact on this community. I was born and raised in the Fort Wayne area, and it’s important to me to work with companies in this market so that I can help them grow and thrive.
