Who I work with

I work with forward-thinking entrepreneurs, CEOs and CFOs of restaurant and franchise brands who want to improve their operations and achieve long-term financial success. I have spent the past 20 years working with some of the biggest, well-known names in the food, franchise and hospitality industries, serving in the roles of advisor, accountant, CFO and director of finance.

My specialty

As a skilled restaurant consultant, I strive to help my clients achieve their innovation and expansion goals, partnering with C-level executives and leaders to develop new policies and implement revenue-generating growth strategies. I also specialize in providing restaurant accounting, tax and outsourced financial services, including cost segregation studies, nexus studies, franchise royalty audits, and buy- and sell-side transaction solutions.

Unique things about me

Fun facts: I was named to the Most Notable Women in Accounting and Consulting list by Crain’s New York Business two years in a row. Each holiday season, I knit scarves and donate them to those in need.
