Get to know Rob—
What is your personal philosophy?
I work as hard as I can to help my clients end up in a better place than the day they met me.
What would your clients say about working with you?
I try to always be available for them and help them make decisions that are in their best interests. I think many of them would call me their friend at this point.
What is something unique about you that most people would not know?
I love music and I am learning to play the guitar. I would be willing to travel to a different state to enjoy a Dave Matthews Band concert, and I’ve done so!
If you weren’t a CPA and financial professional, what would your profession be?
I would be a professional sports coach. I currently coach little league baseball and CYO baseball.
Who has had the greatest positive impact on your life?
My children, Drew and Sean, remind me every day of the good in people.
