Born and raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Erik attended college at the Carlson School of Management in Minneapolis. Upon graduating with a B.A. in Accounting as well as a Master’s of Accountancy in 2014, he spent four years in public accounting, serving as the in-charge on assurance engagements. He worked on public and private engagements in a variety of industries with a focus on private equity, manufacturing, medical device, and benefit plans. He switched careers in 2018 to pursue a passion for financial planning, joining an independent RIA firm in Minnetonka. In this role, he served in the advisory group, providing holistic wealth management services to ultra-affluent families.
