I graduated from Indiana University Kelley School of Business in 1991 with a major in Accounting. From there I obtained my CPA designation while working in Financial Audit Services at Price Waterhouse Coopers in Indianapolis. This valuable experience with a then Big 6 accounting firm enabled me to take Controller positions with Liebhardt Mills (Westpoint Stevens), TelStreet.com (Brightpoint), Weaver Popcorn, and Centre Properties (Commerical Real Estate). While working as CPA between 2005 and 2008, I built 30 brand new rental homes using 7 different builders in the Fishers area. During that same time period, I became a Realtor and formed Ladig Realty LLC to help my clients buy and sell homes, flip homes, and provide property management.
