To say Ryan enjoys golf would be an understatement. He’s a certified super fan who first decided to pursue accounting because it was a career that would give him plenty of time to hit the links in the summer – and he once shot a 12 under par! Golf’s influence on his life extends beyond the course. His favorite quote is from Tiger Woods, who said, “You can always become better.” It’s this philosophy that reminds him that life is more fun when you’re learning, growing, and improving.
Ryan believes in treating every tax return as if it were his own. He specializes in tax planning and consulting for small businesses, especially clients in the agriculture industry, as well as personal tax, tax planning, and consulting. A patient individual who provides excellent service, Ryan attributes his success to the influence of great parents, professors, and mentors.
Ryan and his family reside in Harrisburg, South Dakota, an area he appreciates for its big-city opportunities and small-town feel. He and his wife, Deanna, share four children and one dog named Bunker. When he isn’t at the office or on the golf course, Ryan spends his time at his children’s sporting events, watching The Office, or listening to PopRocks on Sirius XM. His favorite places to travel are Ireland and Scotland.
