Chris came to JAK immediately after passing the CPA exam in late 2015. As a staff accountant, he’s thrilled to be building a career in public accounting—a field he’s been enamored with since high school.
Ambitious and resourceful, Chris secured a position at a retirement planning firm while sitting for the CPA exam. His duties involved analyzing clients’ individual cash flows and retirement projections. This experience, coupled with a longstanding interest in business culture, gave Chris a strong knowledge base for his CPA career.
Chris’ family has provided him with a rock-solid foundation, too. The quality time he spends with them usually revolves around playing board or lawn games and grilling. Inspired to support families in need, he participates in a Secret Santa program that donates gifts to underprivileged children each year. In his free time, he likes to ride his bike while listening to music or an audiobook.
