> What I Bring

My interest in bookkeeping and financial management started when I was a complex litigation paralegal and was responsible for determining financial damages for civil cases. Delving into forensic accounting was like putting together a puzzle without the picture to refer to. I needed to follow every lead, review every detail in the documents, determine what was missing, and put the pieces together to make sense of the numbers.

When I transitioned from the paralegal field to University administration, I continued to be drawn to the numbers. What were they telling me? How could I make sense of them for my colleagues? Were there ways to legally and ethically make adjustments so funds were available for new concepts and directions? I consistently worked to streamline processes for time efficiencies and put internal controls in place so funds were protected. In all of my positions in the government sector, I was able to successfully explain complex legal requirements and financial best practices to lay persons.
