Summary

Expert Accountant with extensive track record in business-to-business (B2B), business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-government (B2G) experience. This has given me the unique talent to collect many skills and the ability to apply accounting theories, in all its forms, to all accounting processes.  Some of my knowledge includes property / real estate accounting, finance, cost research, budgeting, budget analysis, accounts receivable/ payable, collections, cost accounting, inventory control, management and various operational processes. I have worked with various mortgage companies, banks, property management companies, legal firms, education/ training schools, and the US Army.  I can fit in as a team member as well as a supervisor/ manager. My greatest skill is my exceptionally advance knowledge to manipulate Microsoft Excel into custom spreadsheets and expert knowledge of QuickBooks and various software.
