I founded FuturED Finance because I understand the importance of creating more resilient, and capable institutions of higher education through strengthening the finance function. My goal is to partner with you to understand obstacles to success, offer ideas, tools + approaches to create alignment, build teams and improve outcomes.
I have spent over 20 years in financial strategy, planning, and analysis with a focus on collaboration and successfully partnering within the institution to close the gap between finance and operations. After spending several years with a Big 4 accounting firm, I provided outsourced CFO and financial turnaround services for a broad range of industries, both in and out of education, before working directly in higher education.
Most recently I acted as the COO and CFO of an industrial arts school where I oversaw faculty, student services and the development and launch of new academic programs. I continued to serve as an adjunct professor at Providence College during the pandemic and am excited to return to consulting to leverage this broad perspective in order to help institutions thrive and evolve.
As a strategist and planner, I am passionate about creating value for my clients. My entrepreneurial mindset and intellectual curiosity drive me to find creative ways to solve problems, prioritize and deliver tangible outcomes in a growing institution. I enjoy the challenge of developing and leading organization-wide change management, especially turning around performance. Let me help your institution grow!
