How I can help you

I can help improve your business performance in finance, accounting, business planning, and operations.  I was the chief financial officer and treasurer for one start-up company and have consulted with two other start-ups.  I have worked for or consulted with small businesses in internet retail, traditional retail and retail direct sales. I enjoy teaching others business principles, concepts, tools, and processes.  I have taught 25 college classes (approximately 500 students) on entrepreneurship and small business start-up.


As a chief financial officer, treasurer and controller, I have helped on-going businesses implement organization change in accounting, human resources, and information technology.  I have been a leader in advocating and installing both large and small state-of-the-art automated systems to improve business performance.  I have recruited, developed and managed high performing small and large staffs.  I worked for manufacturing and services companies in the defense, computer, and direct sales industries.
