I love small businesses and I love helping people accomplish their goals I enjoy the problems that business owners and executives have because I love playing a small role in helping them overcome their obstacles and accomplish more than they ever thought possible. 

I am a CPA (certified public accountant) and a CMA (certified managerial accountant) and I have played the role of CFO, COO, President and trusted adviser in many small businesses over my 23 year career.   

I began my accounting career at Deloitte and quickly realized that I hated auditing but I loved all those small businesses that I was performing the audit on After a few years, I left Deloitte, moving over to a Controller position in a small business and I never looked back!  

I have a passion for "cleaning up" small businesses The more disorganized and dysfunctional, the better I enjoy creating a solid foundation for the business by adding cash flow forecasting, reliable, timely financial reporting, operational process, goals, mentoring and creating effective teams. Throughout the process of building the foundation, I educate the team (the owner and key employees) to understand the tools and techniques I implement to allow for continued success and a timely exit strategy for me. 

I am an adjunct professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo and I also teach at the University at Buffalo Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) which is a special class for owners of small businesses and high level executives to overcome business challenges, create new opportunities and develop meaningful connections within the business community.
