I graduated with a B.S. in Accounting from Florida State University and became a CPA in 1991. With my extensive background in professional accounting, I joined the company ready to take on the financial needs of the business.
My previous experience includes 6 years with a local CPA firm, 11 years with the Department of Justice, and 6 years as a CFO of a credit union. While at the CPA firm, I was responsible for preparing financial statements, budgets, forecasts, cash flow statements, and projections for all types of business sectors. I was in charge of conducting audits and prepared business, personal, and estate tax returns. At the Dept. of Justice, I helped facilitate the Ch. 11 debtor’s financial reporting and accounting practices in order to determine feasibility of bankruptcy restructuring. I prepared exhibits for court proceedings and testified as an expert witness. As the CFO of the credit union, I assist the CEO in achieving their strategic goals. I monitor the credit union’s asset liability position and investment portfolio and work closely with all regulatory agencies. I oversee all financial activities and ensure financial compliance and accuracy.
At Wilderness Graphics, I provide my financial expertise to all aspects of the company, from business management and financial administration to strategic planning and contract negotiations. I handle the day-to-day accounting, personnel, taxes, and budgets. When it comes to the numbers and keeping the company on track, I jump in with both feet. Maybe that’s why power walking is my hobby!
My personal goal for our small business is to maintain a work atmosphere where creativity, quality, and innovation come together to create the best product for our clients. I want our employees to feel valued and part of the team, constantly striving toward great customer service, professionalism, and excellence
