I work hand-in-hand with Tom and the staff to continue to develop and perfect an innovative platform of integrated desktop, web, and mobile services that ensure continued excellent service to our clients.

I love to cook, could easily spend all of my time doing genealogical research, don't know how many innings are in a football game, am absolutely lethal to anything from the plant kingdom, and loves spending time with family. I have two sons and two grandchildren. My first personal computer was a RadioShack TRS-80 Model I and (shiver) I still have my DOS 5 manual.

I earned a B.A .in Sociology and Psychology from Gettysburg College and an M.S. in Computer Science from Polytechnic Institute of NYU. I began actively consulting with LongwoodCPA in 2009 after 35 years in the real estate development and construction industries. At various times in my career, I have been a civil engineer, a transportation planner, a project manager, an IT consultant, a cost accountant, a corporate purchasing agent, and an ERP manager in premier firms with national or regional practices of elite clientele.
