When she commits to a project, it is as good as done. We are so lucky to have her “the Entrepreneur CFO” as our business partner as we continue to grow and expand our business. Her work in mentoring is admirable - I was blown away with the incredible content on every page, pushing you to think deeply about your career thus far, your personal mindset, and how to successfully navigate the accounting industry.
