How I can help you

With over thirty years experience in non-profit organizations and US government positions in the development arena, I have spent much time and effort in mentoring and supporting people who are trying to build a better life for themselves through small business development. My strengths are in financial and grant administration, budgeting, strategic planning, human resources, training and logistics. I can provide training both to individuals and in classes on various administrative and accounting topics such as understanding and preparation of financial information, accounting systems, cash management, inventory management, and procurement procedures. About a third of my work was overseas in developing nations and this has given me a clear understanding and facility with building multi-cultural teams and an ability in addressing cross-cultural matters. Working with interns at nonprofits and with Peace Corps volunteers has been the best part of my worklife and has always given me great pleasure. I believe I have been helpful and will be again with SCORE.
