Areas of Expertise


I have spent several years of my career owning the entire payroll process from maintenance to processing to reporting to tax filing. I also created payroll and benefit journal entries, reconciled, and analyzed payroll and benefit accounts, and created payroll analysis reports specific to companies’ ever-changing needs.

Finance and Accounting Operations

I've been responsible for various accounting duties, including month-end close processes, day-to-day accounting, budgeting, account reconciliations, financial analysis and reporting, and cost-benefit analysis. I strive to ensure accuracy in all that I do.

System Implementation

I have been a key player in multiple system implementations. I have been responsible for project management, system setup, process design, testing, training, report creation, and documentation. I enjoy digging into the details and ensuring accuracy by not cutting any corners during the testing process. I prioritize educating end-users on using new systems efficiently and accurately.

Process Improvement

I look for ways to ensure efficient and accurate processes. As I come across errors, I look for ways to improve the process on the front end to help minimize errors. In the past, when system-generated reports didn’t match company needs, I would create reports to solve the problem.
