In my next life, I want to be an interior designer. I love tackling remodeling projects.

As the leader of the firm’s transaction advisory practice for the Rocky Mountain region, I’ve been involved in hundreds of transactions on both the buy and sell side, including quality of earnings, working capital targets and resolution, profitability analysis, and carve-out financial statements. For 25 years, I’ve served clients in manufacturing and distribution, healthcare, professional services, consumer products, technology, and real estate.

My focus is serving my clients and doing what it takes to get the job done. But, I also believe you have to do so with a sense of humor and a smile. What I enjoy most about my job is the variety of my clients and projects. Every deal is different, and my role is to help clients achieve their unique goals. I enjoy digging into the details and using my creativity to craft a story behind the numbers.

I’m regularly asked to speak at conferences on panels about business transition planning and transactions. Memberships include the AICPA, the Colorado Society of CPAs, Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors, and I’m the board president of the Association of Corporate Growth – Denver Chapter. My alma mater is the University of Illinois at Chicago where I graduated with a B.S. in accounting.

I enjoy watching sports, hiking, and spending as much time as I can with my children and dogs.
