In today's tough economic environment, it's increasingly challenging to create new businesses that can weather the difficult startup phase, and grow and prosper into the future. Through more than 20 years experience as a financial manager and consultant, I've learned that accurate data, with regular reporting, comprehensive budget administration, and hands-on management can help any business find their path toward success. As a consultant I listen to my clients' needs, identify areas for improvement, and build an innovative business plan to meet and exceed all expectations. Worried that your salespeople don't have accurate inventory data? Let's work on system integration. Financial forecasting not holding up, making benchmarking into a nightmare? Let's work on data collection, reporting, and accuracy. I have been responsible for all financial administration, including accounting processes, payroll, and reporting and planning. I am seeking a new opportunity in the Orange County area to leverage my deep operational experience, financial expertise, problem solving skills, and leadership for a team that shares my passion for growth and success.
