"I work with clients to understand the ‘big picture’ view and the vision they have for their businesses going forward. Knowing this allows me to service clients by advising them on the best course of action in the moment while anticipating future challenges requiring responsiveness and flexibility. I endeavor to ensure my clients’ deals cross the finish line expeditiously.
