When I originally started the firm I just wanted to survive in my own business. My thought was to work for a small group of clients on a very exclusive basis, which would provide me with a decent living and more control over my schedule. Eventually, I reached a point when my clients needed more, and my thinking had to change.
As a result, the company is growing, our services are expanding, and it’s a lot more fun. Along with client work, I spend my time looking for innovative ways to serve more clients, improve our processes and broaden our geographic reach.
I feel fortunate that I found something I’m good at. Being that person whom clients trust with their critical issues suits me well. Over the span of my professional career, I have served as an entry level accounting clerk, controller, firm administrator, and as an entrepreneur who failed and succeeded. I understand the technical aspects of running small and mid-sized firms law firms as well as the personalities that define successful firms.
Living in a data-driven world that expects instantaneous answers, I help clients to leverage available data collection applications to remove much of the guesswork from the decision-making process. And while I prefer a data-driven approach to making complex business decisions, I am not afraid to rely on my instincts and experience, especially when solutions are unclear or the time horizon is short.
I deeply appreciate the weight of leadership on many of our clients. I find the most fulfillment when our work results in a better decision-making process. I enjoy collaborating with our clients, coworkers, colleagues, and even competitors to produce results for our clients.
I hope we get to work together someday.
