“I believe in providing excellent, quality service to my clients. It’s important to me to anticipate my clients’ needs and respond in a timely manner, in order to allow them to have the information they need to run their business in the most efficient manner.”

Peers describe Jeff as a quiet leader who always sets a good example.  He is always dependable and willing to put in the hard work. Jeff knew accounting was his calling from the moment he took an accounting class in high school.

Jeff’s favorite book is Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, as he has benefited from the various life lessons it has to offer.  He enjoys this quote by John D. Rockefeller: “The secret to success is to do the common things uncommonly well.”

Jeff has ridden the DALMAC, Michigan’s great end-of-summer bike ride, three times (Lansing to the Mackinac Bridge).  He enjoys both the metropolis and cultural sides of the Lansing area, as well as family time with his wife and children at their cottage on Houghton Lake.  A two time marathon runner, Jeff resides in Haslett, Michigan.
