Thought Leadership


Q. Describe your work style.

I don’t let perfection get in the way of progress as I believe in the power of continuous improvement. I focus on the big picture, helping others see how individual contributions can impact both the team and our strategy. My aim always is to find practical solutions.

Q. What’s your proudest moment?

As a parent, I find some of the smallest moments are the most meaningful. Teaching my kids how to ride a bike was one of those moments. It brought such a sense of accomplishment for us, and it was a reminder that life is about sharing the things that matter with those you love.

Q. Who is (or was) the most influential person in your life?

I grew up in a blue-collar family, so I wasn’t exposed to college or being a professional. While I was still in high school, I worked with a gentleman whose wife was an accomplished executive and she became my role model. Watching her — how she operated and the way she carried herself with confidence — was a learning experience.

Q. If you could pass on a nugget of wisdom to aspiring accountants or consultants, what would that be?

Allow curiosity to lead you, ask genuine questions and show real interest in helping people. This is how you’ll go far in life.

Q. What do you love most about your work?

I want to be impactful for our staff. What keeps me coming back are questions like “How can I help our team?” and “How can I empower them to be successful and grow?” Accounting can be such an intense career; I like to help our team be efficient and get home sooner. I enjoy putting processes and technology in place to help our company be better.
