I began my career with the Evansville-based public accounting firm Harding Shymanski & Company PSC, specializing in both income and estate taxation. While there, I developed a passion for economic markets and, in 1998, received the highest score nationally among all applicants taking the PFS exam. Shortly thereafter, I joined Pettinga Financial Advisors.
