    The services I provide enable my clients to perform at their highest levels. I am the interface between management and staff, between client and owner, and across all business and community partners. After all, the Wizard of Oz without his technology was just another man behind the curtain! I am a high-performance financial management professional with diverse management abilities. My favorite projects are the problems I stumbled across by chance. My natural strengths are observation, communication, and a “lead the charge” attitude. I’m passionate about people and fascinated by the nature of humans; I try to factor our human nature into all my calculations and recommendations. I’ve listed some achievements with former employers below. Since April 2013, I have been working with a variety of clients as an independent contractor. I enjoy an on-going relationship with my clients and for confidentiality purposes I do not post their projects. References from current clients can be provided as needed. Facing an $80,000/year budget cut, I saved a program and the jobs of everyone working on it. I identified cross-divisional savings opportunities and presented a proposal to the financial decision makers, enabling the department to realize savings that were right there all along. By boosting morale, actively listening to staff, and adjusting work duties to better match them, I vastly improved the performance of my county office. I earned a High Performance award and a Teamwork award. Statewide, our office ranking moved up 10 out of 40 positions compared to other county offices. I designed an Excel document that automated the preparation of cases for court. Previous preparation required 2 staff for 3 days biweekly. The automation decreased prep time to 1 person for 2 days biweekly.
