Aaron is a motivated and reliable staff member focused on doing the best for his clients. He always wanted a career that would utilize his strengths, which is what led him to accounting. He enjoys being able to help individuals and businesses achieve financial success. Aaron attributes his personal success to his dedication, positivity, and ability to work with others. He also believes his parents – Tom and Cheri – were the most influential adults in his life and helped him get to where he is today.


Raised in Bryant, Arkansas, Aaron currently resides in Benton with his wife, Ashley. Ashley and Aaron were high school sweethearts and now have two kids – Aiden and Anderson as well as a dog named Brody. Aaron’s favorite thing about central Arkansas is the small city feel with access to big city things like great entertainment, food, shopping, as well as the outdoors. In his free time, he enjoys making memories with his family by traveling, especially to the Caribbean. He also is a devoted Arkansas Razorback fan.
