"Having grown up in a small town outside of Chicago, I’ve always appreciated the Midwestern values that I was raised on. Integrity, friendliness, and hard-work were instilled in me from the start, and that has carried me through each step of my personal and professional career. I’ve found that the Midwestern values that I’ve wanted to build my career on are a lot in common with the core values at BKC.
The culture at BKC allows me to put people first in everything that I do. These meaningful relationships, whether that be a co-worker or a client, are the foundation to BKC’s success and growth. And with this solid foundation, I’m able to 'roll up my sleeves' and work towards providing an unmatched service to all individuals and businesses associated with BKC."
