How I can help you
As a long-time business financial analyst in many areas with HP, Inc. (formerly Hewlett Packard), I can help SCORE Clients in various aspects of business including: - strategy and business planning - forecasting and budgeting - pricing and revenue analysis - cost analysis - profit and loss analysis - mentoring worldwide teams - supply chain and logistics analysis - inventory tracking - project management - creating impactful content, reports and presentations - solving problems and understanding data with Excel spreadsheet and Access database tools My career with HP provided a broad knowledge of many aspects of a worldwide company. I have experience partnering with all levels of management and the functions. In projects, I led efforts to gather and assimilate the data to understand business issues, assist in decision making and improve business performance.
I also have life experience in agriculture (farm, dairy, gardening and farmers markets). Operating my family's dairy gave me a solid foundation of what it takes to build and grow a business, manage through ups and downs and make tough decisions to transition out.
With my mom's guidance, I developed a green thumb and enjoy gardening to such a degree I founded our local farmers market with my husband. We nurtured the market and vendors and experimented with all manner of create ways to promote the market with the city officials and the community. It was my introduction to Facebook, websites and writing weekly articles for the newspaper. These are outlets for my creative side that I have continued to use in my volunteer efforts to support the community. I am on the communications committee for the Idaho 99s Chapter and the Northwest Section of the 99s Women Pilots. I also support the Boys and Girls Club and have served on the board of directors for Ponderosa Aero Club.
