I love to show people their business in the way they hadn’t seen before, streamline processes while keeping quality standards high, and finding the blind spots others don’t see…and then fixing them.

I leverage analytical tools to advise businesses and boards on how to achieve organizational objectives, reduce risk, free up cash, and find the “financial confidence” to better position themselves for further growth.

I work best with organizations…
- who have reached the point where growth depends on astute attentiveness and responsiveness to KPI’s that target leading indicators, rather than lagging indicators, of success
- where cash flow is the difference between growth and stagnation
- where stronger controls and healthy financial forecasts will position them for IPO, financing, sale, or JV/ M&A activity.
