"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

As a seasoned business leader, board member, and strategic advisor, my expertise lies in public accounting and commercial banking. With a proven track record in Corporate Governance and Risk, Business Transformation, Corporate Turnarounds, and Growth strategies, I bring valuable insights to the table.

Business Leader/Transformer with Financial Acumen
With a background in public accounting, including serving as an auditor and licensed CPA at Ernst & Young, one of the prestigious Big Four firms, I have gained invaluable expertise in financial operations. As a CFO of a private business and later as the CEO and CFO of an SEC-registered bank holding company, I have successfully navigated complex corporate turnarounds and executed growth strategies with a sharp focus on financial acumen and business transformation.

Authentic Relationship Builder
Driven by my genuine passion for fostering authentic connections, I actively contribute to various boards and civic organizations. Currently, I serve as a distinguished board member and audit committee member at Independence Bank, a prominent banking institution in Kentucky. In addition, I hold the esteemed position of chairing the Nominating Committee at the Commonwealth Fund for Kentucky Educational Television. Recently, I have been appointed to the Advisory Board of the NACD Nashville chapter, where I proudly serve as the Chair of the Program Committee.

By combining my financial expertise, transformative leadership, and dedication to cultivating meaningful relationships, I bring a unique skill set and a valuable perspective to the organizations and boards I engage with.
