I have been a partner in Phoenix Group LLC since November of 2018. I typically oversee all finance and accounting related engagements as well as some of the software selection engagements. My favorite part of my role is learning about the client and helping them achieve their goals. I have always had a passion for business and, in fact, started my own business at the age of thirteen. Each day I feel blessed to be at Phoenix Group working at my dream job. My responsibilities also include P & L oversight, human resources and client services.
My twelve plus years of consulting practice management plus in industry experience has given me specialization in the non-profit, aviation and manufacturing business sectors.
Outside of the office, I dedicate some time to giving back to the community and supporting my profession with board positions in organizations such as United Way, Institute of Management Accountants, West Michigan Association of Financial Professionals, Lakewood Community Women and SEEK.
As a working mother, my other passion is my crazy family. I have three beautiful daughters and strive to be a good role model for them. My oldest somewhat followed in my footsteps with a career in finance. In addition to the girls, I have two stepsons, two wonderful daughter-in-laws, a great son-in-law and four fun and lively grandchildren. I love to travel and my happy place is definitely on a tropical beach!
I joined Phoenix Group LLC as an Account Executive in the fall of 2020. I focus my time on new business development and growing long-term client relationships. My background is in Staffing Industry, where I sold contingent labor services, recruited professional-level talent and connected talented people with opportunities in the automotive, food production and medical device industry. Before staffing, I was a retail business owner and Product Marketing Manager for a large consumer goods company. I have always been a connector and enjoy linking people for business, service or friendship.
I participate in Business Associations, Networking, and Community events to meet business leaders and discover new business opportunities. My goal is to introduce them to our service, interest them in learning more and schedule a time when I may introduce them to our firm’s Partners.
Meeting new people is a passion of mine! I have volunteered my time and expertise with several non-profits organizations and served on the Board of Directors for The Association of Human Resources Managers, Grand Rapids Art Museum, Arts Alive, G.R.O.W. and The Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs. I have a B.A. in Business Management from Cornerstone University.
Outside the office, I spend my time with my family and friends in Rockford or Lake Leelanau, Michigan.
I joined Phoenix Group LLC as a partner in May of 2017. My background as a former banker and technology business owner allows me to put myself in our client’s shoes and quickly identify with the challenges they face. At Phoenix Group, I am responsible for internal technology support and client services.
With over ten years of management consulting experience, I typically oversee the technology related engagements. My expertise includes healthcare, financial institutions and manufacturing.
I firmly believe in giving back to the community and am currently exploring new opportunities to do so.
When I am not in the office, you can often find me still cheering on the Rockford Rams or relaxing in Petoskey with my wife and two adult children. I have always enjoyed golfing but recently started skeet shooting and am an overall sports fan. I enjoy travel, with Florida being my favorite warm getaway.
Fractional Marketing Consultant
I joined the Phoenix Group as a fractional marketing consultant in the fall of 2020 to assist with marketing projects.
My ten years of marketing consulting along with my years in healthcare have allowed me to learn about many industries and bring the best practices of each to each client engagement.Integrating web, internal/external marketing and communications and tying it all to operations and strategy is the space where I can bring the most value to organizations.
Outside of the office, I like to travel (when time and restrictions permit), read, enjoy the outdoors and give love to my dog Lucy.
