I am a financial executive with more than 40 years of hands-on operational experience in the accounting field. I hold a BS and MS in accounting and a CPA. Throughout the course of my career I have worked with students and professionals, teaching them the fundamentals of accounting and how to apply them in the workplace. I have also tutored accounting on line and have experience in dealing with students. My decades of experience began when I served as an undergraduate tutor for accounting students who were having challenges in their coursework. As a graduate student, I then served as a teaching assistant for MBB candidates. Following my graduation, I joined a Big 4 accounting firm in New York City, where I worked for 5 years and quickly climbed the ranks to manager. After leaving public accounting, I accept a position as director of International Audit of an international manufacturing group with locations throughout the world. I worked with the organization for 25 years and I eventually held the positions of division controller, group controller and VP of Operations & CFO. I mentored and worked with a team of controllers working on accounting practices and cost accounting.
