Audit Director at Aprio | providing clients a better financial reporting experience
Who I work with
As a director in Aprio’s Assurance Practice, I provide individualized accounting and financial reporting services to business owners of manufacturing and distribution entities up to $300 million in sales, and apparel companies up to $200 million in sales. I also have significant audit expertise in real estate and construction, retail, franchising, professional services including medical, advertising and media, financial and investment advisory, health and welfare funds and employee benefit plans.
I enjoy connecting through LinkedIn and delivering value to my network. If you are looking for a better financial reporting experience, let’s talk.
I have 20+ years of experience in audit, reviews and compilations, financial reporting and analysis, US GAAP, internal controls and technical accounting. I lead Aprio audit teams and provide technical review and guidance on all client deliverables. My oversight delivers practical solutions that ensure our clients’ accounting systems are operating effectively. A good portion of my days are spent researching accounting trends, conducting proactive engagement and staff planning, and educating clients and prospects. I respond quickly to questions like:
- How can Aprio complete my engagement within compressed timelines?
- What is Aprio’s relevant accounting and assurance work experience in my industry?
- What are Aprio’s professional fees for engagements?
- Can you help me optimize my processes and analysis capabilities to lower costs?
Unique things about me
I thoroughly enjoy sharing my accounting expertise to mentor and develop Aprio team members and educate clients.
At the close of engagements, I always advise clients on opportunities to drive future cost savings through optimization of internal processes and data analysis.
I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from Hunter College (CUNY)
