How I can help you

I can help you focus strategically on developing your business idea into a business. Tactically, I can help you design successful financial, marketing, and operation plans to start, grow, or improve operations in your business.

As a CPA, a CFO of a large manufacturer, General Manager of a mid-size engineered products company, and an owner/operator of a small manufacturing company for 20 years, I have experienced and navigated the many facets of starting, growing, and operating a small business. During my career, I also participated at a senior level in "not for profit" industry associations and community organizations.

Recently I completed a Doctoral degree in Leadership Studies while teaching finance, accounting, and economics as an Adjunct Professor at the university level and in an MBA program.
