An accountant with 15 years professional experience in contract manufacturing, industrial wholesale, independent sales representative, and online marketplaces.  I hold both an undergraduate degree in music education(2004) and a MBA with a specialization in finance(2009)  from Ashland University.  I specialize in implementing technology in accounting  to provide analytics for reporting and decision making.

Finance skills have been mastered from the ground up with day to day operations experience at all levels from clerical to controller.  Along the way developing practical experience in IT, system administration, Office 365, Linux, and software migrations.

Analytic skills have their roots in Excel but are now reinforced by SQL, Python and Power BI. Combined these disciplines create an approach that is practical, insightful and strategic.

I value lifelong learning and professional development is a daily routine.  I enjoy listing to podcasts, taking online courses, and diving into hobby projects.  My patient attitude and pedagogical awareness lend well to being a good coach and mentor to help develop those I work with.
