Bio

Curiosity, compassion, intelligence and an intensely competitive spirit are the personal characteristics that have driven my professional success.

16 years as a music business professional (studio/live performance, musical director, talent buyer, event producer) followed by 6 years as a non-profit executive and youth pastor prepared me perfectly for my role as AcctTwo's Strategic Relationship Executive - driving all business development initiatives for the company's Faith-Based vertical.

I am passionate about helping churches and non-profits achieve success by transforming Finance & Accounting into a growth enabler & change agent through relationship building, deep-dive consultation and transparent evaluation of needs.

Be it a cloud-based software solution or outsourcing performed by AcctTwo's Managed Accounting Services team with over 200 years of collective experience, I am dedicated to our customers' business longevity and their full realization of mission & vision.

In my spare time, I love baking and cooking for family, listening to music of all kinds, running really far distances, reading voraciously, and completing the NYTimes crossword (it doesn't happen that often, for the record).
