She leads with almost two decades of experience and mastery as an accountant and is a corporate attorney supporting nonprofits and small businesses.

Her counsel in financial management; corporate structure, governance, and compliance; and business coaching has helped countless organizations to minimize risk, manage with integrity, succeed, scale, and thrive.
