I love when fellow team members seek out my financial expertise to solve an issue. It is always satisfying knowing that my insights can bring value to my team and the company. Even more satisfying is when those insights can have a healthy impact on our bottom line or cash flow!
I love to cook! It’s a creative outlet for me but I can’t follow a recipe to save my life. Recipes are just inspiration for creating a new dish to serve my family.
In my down time, I love watching movies. I especially love classic old movies in black in white.
