SUMMARY

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

Process Improvement

With the many years of working within Internal Audit, I thrive in identifying areas for process improvements which allow businesses to become more efficient, and usually result in cost savings. Once the opportunity has been identified, I enjoy the execution phase of process improvement and seeing the transformation take place.

Financial & Operational Leadership

Early in my career, I realized my passion for accounting. I have taken my accounting career a step further to be a business partner to the leaders of a business. I can help explain a financial statement is more than profit and loss. I love working side-by-side with businesses to understand the operations and help transform all aspects of a business with positive impact to the financial statements.

Data Analytics

As technology continue to improve, I enjoy being able to model large amounts of data into a digestible format to benefit the company. Uncomplicated data visibility allows the company to leverage data into insights for budget and process improvements.

System Implementations

Throughout my career, I have had many roles within system implementations, whether it was a small add-on system to large ERP systems. Most of my roles involved the project management and tracking the progress of the implementation to ensure all involved were informed of the progress.
