Caleb Snyder joined McGee, Hearne & Paiz, LLP (MHP) as an Audit Associate in July, 2015 after earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Western Governors University.
Caleb attended the University of Wyoming right out of high school and was double majoring in Political Science and Criminal Justice. In his third year of school, he was faced with unforeseen events and was unable to complete his degree at that time. Instead, he started his own construction company. His company required a great deal of travel, including work in the Gulf Coast for a year after Hurricane Katrina. His time there led him to an opportunity to serve as a project manager for a large construction company based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Caleb found that he enjoyed project management, specifically, the financial aspects of it. He also knew by then that he wanted a career that was more stable than construction, especially as a family man. These life experiences led to the decision to return to school and pursue a degree in Accounting.
After leaving his job in Raleigh, Caleb and his wife, Claire, and son, Cohen, moved back to Wyoming to be closer to their families. As he finished up his Accounting degree, Caleb applied to work at MHP, since he had heard that MHP was the biggest firm in Wyoming and had an excellent reputation. "As a former business owner, I am very aware of the impact that good accounting can have on a business. What we do here really matters and has a huge impact on the businesses we serve," said Caleb.
When Caleb isn’t working, he likes hanging out with his son who LOVES to golf. He also enjoys watching football, running, and anything that involves a body of water – fishing, wake boarding, etc. We are so pleased that Caleb’s journey has led to our door.
