My road in life has taken me all over.
Worked in a grocery store in high school.
Had jobs in food service, retail, pet care, drove a forklift during college.
Had a great boss during college that saw my potential & trained me for his job. This was a key step.
Started in retail management right out of college.
Moved to the financial / banking industry next.
Then was found by a non-profit organization.
My next move was to a transportation and logistics company. Worked for a few of these.
I now work in the building and construction industry.
Keep following my journey

Problem Solving

Day to Day

Many of my days are spent meeting with co-workers to find out what types of information they are looking to find to help them review or determine how their part of the company is currently running or how they can improve their area to be more efficient in cost savings or revenue generation. I then take this information and develop an appropriate report that can deliver the information needed. Beyond this, I spend much of my time working to keep the financial statements complete and accurate.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Find a company that wants to teach you how your job matters to the company overall. That doesn't mean you sit in on Executive Board meetings right away. However, you should understand how your job can affect change in the company.
