Chris grew up in Breezy Point/Lakeshore and went to school in Pequot. He graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting with a Finance Minor in 2017. His greatest professional achievement is completing the typical 150 college credits in four years instead of five. Since joining our team, he has found that the most rewarding part about being an accountant is helping his clients to save as much of their hard earned money as possible.

He loves everything about this beautiful state from snowmobiling in the winter to boating in the summer. No matter the season, Chris takes full advantage of all the great outdoor activities. His favorite hobbies include bow/rifle hunting for deer and grouse, trapping, and ice fishing. He also appreciates the leisurely, tourist side of the Lakes Area by enjoying the 4th of July firework shows and the Lighting of Nisswa. One interesting thing you’ll learn about Chris is that he is a classical car buff and has been known to attend the various classical car shows in the area. Chris also prides himself on being a die-hard Minnesota Vikings and Wild fan and we’re pretty sure that if sports jerseys were part of our dress code, he’d be sporting one at the office!
