WHAT I DO: I refine and repair operations and strategies to develop results-oriented financial plans that secure the bottom line and drive sustainable growth. I manage P&L and B/S, working capital, GAAP accounting month-end close activities, develop annual budgets and financial procedures, all while developing innovative, compliant process management and reporting systems that keep workflow efficient and transparent.

WHY IT MATTERS: My roles have put me at the center of a lot of moving parts and competing priorities, and I love guiding all those parts into place to create financially compliant efficient solutions. My single-minded focus from my marketing background on enhancing the customer experience gives me an edge in storytelling and developing a user-friendly financial package for management.

WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT: I balance quantitative analysis with creativity and vision-based passion to guide each stage of marketing and project planning, from brainstorming to customer-facing launch. My scope of expertise spans finance, operations, and the treasury sector as well as marketing, so I bring a uniquely well-rounded perspective to each campaign and process improvement.
