Consulting firms often have the one-sided perspective of government ex-employees and limited credentials. Our Principal understands the goals and limitations of both sellers and buyers. Her whole-picture perspective is enhanced by:

  • 6 years employed as a DCAA auditor
  • 6 years employed as a prime contractor Contract/Subcontract Administrator/Manager
  • Over 3 years employed as an Auditor/Director in an Internal Audit Department
  • More than 15 years as a management consultant to clients in this market

The Portfolio highlights specific accomplishments. Our Principal oversees every project, contributing hands-on services and guidance through client-management strategies. Daily employment responsibilities honed her range of focus, from the typical consulting firm 50,000-foot perspective to the conflicting priorities in the trenches.
