|Job Title:||Director, Financial Planning & Analysis|
What makes you a good mentor?
While being a CPA is the foundation upon which I’ve built my career the skillsets that truly set me apart are relatability, agility and strong communications. I am a relationship focused leader who builds trust with key stakeholders (internal and external) to drive for accountability and results. I'm really excited to share this 'secret sauce' with Business Students --- I wish I would have known this when I was in University.
