I can help improve business performance in business strategy, regulations and finance.
As a certified public accountant (CPA), banker and management consultant, I have helped small businesses in the areas of business strategy, regulations and finance. I can assist you in developing a comprehensive business plan; establishing the proper legal structure for your business; and advising on regulatory matters such as licensing and taxes.
In finance, I can provide guidance in developing operating budgets, record-keeping systems and measurements for monitoring your business performance. And as a former banker, I can advise you in evaluating sources of funds for your business, including financing alternatives.

I have also served as an instructor for accounting and businesses courses at a local college.
