I have been helping business owners in the greater Kansas City area since 2012 in a variety of industries including manufacturing, distribution, financial technology services, engineering services, commercial construction, utilities construction, landscaping, and retail merchandising. I have a passion to reduce stress and free-up time for my clients to be more available for the things they love to do.
I have extensive experience and expertise in identifying business opportunities and developing plans to grow and build company value developed over more than a 26 year career with the Procter & Gamble Company and subsequent years operating as a business owner.
Specific areas of expertise include maximizing cash flow, bank and lending relationships, forecasting, budgeting and cost control and risk management. I also build value by coaching and mentoring staff members in the companies I serve.
As your trusted advisor, I will protect your interests and help you implement a plan to achieve your goals. Working together, we can tackle the barriers to your company’s success.
