Areas of Expertise


I enjoy serving the organization by developing timely and accurate financial statements with well-organized processes. My experiences as Controller of various size companies, Director of an FP&A group, financial reporting teams, and specialized teams has let me see a wide variety of roles and transactions. I do this by implementing quality, right-sized processes that lead to effective controls and reporting across the business.

Process Transformation

My curiosity leads to change. I have accomplished and led integrating teams worldwide, onboarding acquisitions, implementing new systems, improving systems, and tackling the daily work with an open mind. I do this by seeking the “ah-has!” of better transparency across organizations, sighs of relief over an improved process, and the savings of a timely implemented change.

Financial Audit Management

Managing the cost and quality of audits is in our control. With over sixteen years of being audited, mostly by a Big Four firm, I have participated in candid conversations, evaluating codification, and creating quality audit support. I have as many years preparing, reviewing, and serving as one of the final signers on over fifty different audited reports. I do this by walking alongside the audit team to achieve our goals.

Reconciliations & Research

Asking why the accounting results are right is one of my favorite ways to spend time. A large part of that is reconciling and researching the accounts. I do this by partnering with business partners critical of the results and learning about the financial story. I will dig deep and research to make sure the financial story makes sense. I equally enjoy mentoring others to tell a cohesive financial story.
