Skills developed over a variety of roles including Big Eight assurance manager, private equity investment principal, and executive management roles in finance provide a broad background for my deep understanding of financial reporting and analysis. I enjoy working with privately held companies to implement and improve systems for reporting, analysis, budgeting, and forecasting.
Managing over $650 million of invested capital in growth organizations provided me with many opportunities to structure and source all levels of capital including both asset based and cash flow bank debt, mezzanine capital, and equity. I have managed due diligence for both acquisitions and divestitures, created offering memorandums, and successfully negotiated and closed on a wide variety of transactions. Most recently I worked as Treasurer and VP Finance for a health care startup where I facilitated with raising four tranches of growth capital and the subsequent sale of the company to a strategic buyer.
I have served on Boards of Directors, have reported directly to Boards of Directors, and have been a part of the leadership team for several startups. As a trusted advisor, I highly value my credibility and integrity. I enjoy condensing detailed information into meaningful and actionable recommendations. Being a team leader, I can positively and productively impact both strategic and tactical finance and fiduciary duties and responsibilities.
