How I can help you
I grew up on a dairy farm in Western New York and earned a BS degree in Agriculture Economics and a MBA degree from Cornell University. I have worked as an Ag lender, a CPA and in business financial management. I lead the SCORE Maine Agriculture Initiative and provide technical assistance to Agricultural businesses throughout the state. I have worked with dairy, other livestock, row crops, specialty crops and numerous diversified farms, providing assistance with business strategy and planning, financial projections, financing, record keeping using QuickBooks and marketing. I am also a presenter of agricultural specific business education workshops around the state and a frequent panel participant on various Ag business topics. I regularly work with USDA, Maine DACF, Farm Credit East, U-Maine Cooperative Extension, Maine Farmland Trust and other Ag service providers.
I can help with business strategy, financing, accounting, business planning, financial projections and general management. I can also help with marketing, including marketing plans and social media strategy. With my professional CPA and financial management background, I can help with accounting, QuickBooks, cash flow projections, recordkeeping, estimated tax payments, and tax help resources.
