At a time when his peers were still filling out college applications, Drew knew he would become an accountant. He had an aptitude for math, and “real numbers” with “real meaning” just made sense to him. By the time he finished high school, he had a year and a half of college credits under his belt and by the time he was 19, he had landed a coveted accounting internship in Minneapolis.
After earning a degree in accounting at North Dakota State, Drew left the snowy, windy cornfields of his native southwest Minnesota for the misty evergreens of Oregon. He’s been one of our favorite auditors ever since.
Whether he’s visiting his manufacturing industry clients onsite, helping them keep their books precise and their business efficient, or mentoring his fellow auditors in the office, Drew is a relationship builder. Patient and kind, Drew has a warm approachability that draws others to him.
An avid college football fan, Drew follows the Florida Gators. In between games, he loves to hike in the Gorge and one day hopes to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. With his keen sense of direction, you can be sure he’ll get there.
