“I work at Wilson Ihrig for the people. This diverse group of personalities possesses a treasure trove of knowledge with easy access, but also provides healthy doses of amusement. We work hard, but try to have some fun along the way. The culture allows me extreme flexibility so I can accommodate complex personal and family obligations. We always seem to be privileged to work on the unique and challenging problems, and no two days are the same.
