Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself

Leo Tolstoy

I am passionate about

  • Promoting flexible and virtual work programs in the profession – Anytime, Anywhere Work™ – so that people can win both at work and at home and in their personal lives.
  • Creating feedback-rich environments and effective performance evaluation processes in CPA firms, so that team members know where they stand and how to grow and be successful.
  • Educating others on financial benchmarking and reporting and creating more efficient and profitable operations.
  • Helping firms innovate their recruiting and retention programs to more successfully find the talent they need.
  • Helping clients see potential and opportunity around them and feel empowered to take advantage of it.

What makes me whole

  • Spending time in Louisiana, taking in the tastes, sights and sounds of my childhood there. I especially love blueberry picking with my dad in July and strolling through the streets of New Orleans with my husband, Nick.
  • Cooking a delicious meal and then lingering afterward for some engaging conversation with my two opinionated teenagers and our au pair from Germany.
  • Singing baritone with my women’s barbershop chorus, Noteable Blend.

My Prior Professional Endeavors

  • I served as the Firm Administrator for four great firms around the country where I helped them modernize and innovate their HR, financial, operational and IT functions to meet the needs of their team members and clients.
