She brings a wide range of experience to the Apex Team, including more than 20 years of accounting and auditing experience in the hospitality field, as well as a few years of systems installations way back when!

She directed the Accounting, Purchasing, and IT departments, including opening eight luxury hotels (four international properties) where she implemented accounting and business IT systems, as well as performed onsite system and process training. This experience, combined with her specialization in system conversions and internal audit has given her a unique ability to analyze a wide range of business systems and operations as they relate to accounting and financial controls.
