Matt brings a unique and diverse background to The C.O.R.E. Group. Matt
grew up in Northwest Montana, and moved to Spokane in 1990. He attended
Gonzaga University, graduating with a degree in accounting in 1995, and
successfully passed the entire CPA exam that May on his first sitting.
Matt lived and worked overseas in Bulgaria for three years, and upon his
return, worked as a tax accountant, cost accountant, and controller/CFO for a
construction company. While Matt was successful at accounting for day-to-day
activities and making projections, he desired to move into a field where he
could work one-on-one with people to help them plan for strong financial
futures. Matt began his career in the financial services industry in 2001
specializing in retirement planning, estate planning, and insurance planning.
He lives with his wife, Rumiana, and four children; Yulita, Alex, Kylie, and Nikita. In his spare time, Matt enjoys spending time at the family getaway in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.
