Hi, I'm Chad.

After graduating from University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2015 with bachelor degrees in both Accounting and Finance, I returned to my hometown of Lynden and joined the Larson Gross team. Today, I’m a Manager and have earned my CPA and CFP® (Certified Financial Planner™) designations.  

I love helping our individual and family group clients navigate through their financial plan by specializing in income and estate tax. It is such a privilege to help advise our clients in such a personal and intimidating part of their life. I also serve as treasurer of the Northwest Washington Estate Planning Council. 

When I’m not working or listening to a personal financial planning podcast, I enjoy golfing, spending time with friends, and cheering on the Seahawks, Mariners, and my alma mater, the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors.
