Getting to Know Buddy Dowden
I was born and raised in Valpo/South Haven. My love for accounting was sparked during a high school accounting class at Portage High! After high school, I worked a full time job in the legal field and attended classes at night at Purdue Cal. After many years of working and going to school at night, I received a Bachelor's degree in Accounting and started working as a cost accountant at a local corn milling plant. I made the switch to the public accounting arena and began to pursue my CPA license shortly thereafter. Once I started working in public accounting I knew that was where I was meant to be. I absolutely love my job and it’s an amazing feeling to go to work and actually enjoy what I do! My husband Troy is an Accounting major as well, also doubling in Finance. Our son Andrew is 5 years old and developed a love of accounting too after listening to countless hours of CPA exam review courses with mommy! I love spending time with my family and it’s the little things that make me happy!
