As a former senior financial analyst I’ve had the opportunity to work with, train, and develop high performance teams. Being in leadership has taught me many things aside from continually honing your skills, hard work, perseverance, and consistency– it has taught me that teamwork is one of the most important contributors of your success. Being able to navigate a diverse team with different management styles and personalities has also taught me how to listen effectively. By doing so, trust, reliability and partnerships are formed with internal and external clients. This thought process is just one attribute of the many principles NHC LLC recognizes in serving its clients. My goal is to produce and deliver quality services with optimal solutions to help clients reach their goals! By creating automation, businesses are able to focus and operate at increased capacity to achieve their mission.
As your consultant, you glean from 20+ years of corporate and industry experience. I’ve successfully managed projects and initiatives during my tenure at companies such as Ernst & Young LLP, Thomas Jefferson University, and Independence Blue Cross where I contributed to effectively coordinating resources and developing customer service skills to internal and external clients. It was while working for the Government of Dubai, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing I had the opportunity to broaden my skill set learning back-office processes and international business marketing first hand. The exposure in these companies strengthened my critical thinking skills and catapulted the trajectory of my leadership experience.
In the past six years I’ve worked diligently in nonprofit fiscal & grants management and continue serve my clients in this capacity. I’ve attained substantial knowledge and proficiency in program goals and objectives, working with executive leadership, program managers, and funders. My understanding of adherence to contracts and administrative guidelines and reporting is where my strength lies in attention to details. I ensure best practices are being met while supporting fiscal health that contributes to sustainability efforts being achieved. As a former board chair at Urbanstead Francisville Farm, a small urban agricultural nonprofit I understand the responsibility of compliance, resourcefulness, and creating processes and frameworks that supports viability.
In addition to guiding my clients in their entrepreneurial journey, I also teach them how to manage cohesive and diverse teams and implement coaching techniques to build effective leaders. I help nonprofits establish board vetting processes, ensure best practices, and how to manage relationships with customers, partners, boards and sponsors. By focusing on these key areas businesses can position themselves to increase revenue, optimize services, improve fiscal health, and execute objectives in order to achieve their mission.
