Business plans, business start-up, finance, financial projections, financing businesses and start ups, cash flow, budgeting, intellectual property, turn-arounds for troubled businesses. Retail, sales, manufacturing, entertainment, the environmental industry and non-profits. I began my business career by starting a retail ski shop, which built to $1 million in sales as the ski industry boomed. When my daughter was born I sold the ski business and became a stay-at-home mom entrepreneur. I sold custom portraits of children and pets through mail order and specialty shops. Five years later I sold the portrait business and entered the University of Pittsburgh M.B.A. program, majoring in Accounting and Finance. After graduating Magna cum Laude I worked as Assistant Controller and Factory Systems Analyst for a large aluminum foundry and rolling mill in Eastern Ohio. Two very cold winters later I moved to Southern California as Project Financial Analyst for Hughes Aircraft.I moved to Disney to manage the financial affairs for several divisions at the park as well as the construction of Thunder Mountain Railroad. I left Disney to work as a Special Projects Analyst for Shell Oil, then spent 11-1/2 years at Digital Equipment Corporation. At DEC I worked directly with the Western Vice President of Sales, managing the budgeting, reporting, and awards programs for a 300 person sales force. I also served as executive partner to several aerospace and banking companies, wrote the strategic plan for a new $50 million venture, served as national training manager for the Finance and Accounting organization, and as training liaison between Finance and Accounting and the sales group. In 1992 I took early retirement and became a SCORE volunteer. Currently, I work half-time doing marketing, accounting, and financial planning for a small family owned firm. I also work periodically with the Cal State Fullerton School of Business Entrepreneurship program and run three small businesses: consulting for several former employers, art beading and freelance writing
