While not a “runner,” I’ve completed a marathon, and I ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain

Experience

As a leader in our cost and margin intelligence practice, I help our clients understand where they’re making money and where they’re not. My expertise includes the development of overhead models, estimating tools, analytic dashboards, and production observations. While working across a variety of industries, I primarily assist manufacturing companies — from medical device and automotive to food and beverage, or anything in between.

My clients appreciate that I listen to their needs, provide tailored solutions, and identify opportunities for them to further evolve. That’s the cornerstone of our relationship. I’ve been with the firm for over five years. My colleagues know me for my automotive industry experience — from years of working at an OEM and a Tier 1 supplier — and my blend of financial and operations expertise.

I speak to the Precision Metalforming Association, the Forging Industry Association, and the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) on finance and general costing concepts. I belong to the association for supply chain management (APICS), the IMA, and the West Metro Detroit Spartans Alumni Club, where I’m the treasurer. I received my B.A. in marketing and my M.B.A. in supply chain management & general business from Michigan State University. I hold a CPIM designation (certified in production and inventory management) through APICS.

I treasure time with family and friends and enjoy traveling throughout the United States and the world; walking (or biking) in the shoes of others from cities to beaches to mountains, enjoying local food and drink, and learning from these experiences to become a better-rounded person.
