Business & Finance Coach
Last active: 14 days ago
I am a high-performance finance & business consultant with diverse management abilities. With over 8 years experience in government accounting, more than 10 years in small biz, my expertise is now conveniently available online! My experience is varied, including non-profits, startups, property management and law firms. Recently, I've been offered several opportunities to teach and train through webinars and on demand seminars.
My favorite projects are the problems I stumble 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 am the interface between management and staff, between client and owner, and across all business and community partners.
I provide business solutions and support for a select group of carefully chosen business owners including: Financial Analysis, Reporting, Business Plans, Budget Management, Human Resources, Marketing, Expense Reduction Analysis, Organizational Change Management, Billing, A/P, Software and Staff Training, Auditing, and Bookkeeping.
I have listed some of my achievements in the public sector below. Since April 2013, I have been working with a variety of private 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.
