THE University of Oregon
What is your current job title?
I am an associate.
Why did you choose to work at Kernutt Stokes?
I didn’t originally intend on being an accountant, but through my college job I had heard about this opportunity and gave it a shot. Throughout the recruiting process I slowly got to know some of the staff here at KS and knew this was the place I wanted to be, and I was right, a lot of them are some of my best friends now and that makes it a very easy environment to work in.
What are the greatest benefits of working at Kernutt Stokes?
Comp time is a huge perk. A lot of my friends can’t believe it, or staff at other firms. Especially how easy it is to use. The partner group wants us to be able to take time off and recharge after a long busy season.

Pulled Pork, Pizza, Steak, Elk Burger, Pulled Pork, Mac and Cheese, Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese.

Country Music for sure, but I will listen to anything. I’m especially proud of my 90s, early 2000s pop punk playlist… all the nostalgia.
What do you enjoy most about living and working in Eugene?
My family is all within a short drive from here, which was very important to me. Also, in Eugene there is a little bit for everyone. No matter your interests, there is something here for you.
What is your favorite activity to do in Eugene?
I enjoy just being outside, playing golf, hiking, floating, going to restaurants.
What is a fun fact about you?

New York City and Nashville are my top two right now. At least one of this will most likely get crossed off next summer.
