Personal Insights

What do you enjoy most about being a Research Analyst?
One of the aspects I enjoy most about being a research analyst is that it’s not static, things are constantly changing every day. I also really enjoy the variety of industries and companies I get to learn about.

What was your journey to the investment world and NPF specifically?
I started my career in commercial banking and then became interested in the investment world and finally decided to make the change. I came to NPF after meeting a few employees and learning about the firm and its investment management approach. I liked their investment management style, but more importantly the people on the team.

What is your favorite book?
The Law by Fredric Bastiat

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy being outside and active whether it be running, biking, or hiking. One of my absolute favorite things to do is hike with my son, Kyler. We often explore different parks/trails around West Michigan. One of our favorites is Saugatuck Dunes State Park.
