Owner, Advisor, & Accountant
As a small business owner myself, Cloud Friday was a creation of mine that grew out of many needs. Needs of myself and of others I knew. It was not a quick or small decision to start this company, but it was a necessary one. Let me tell you my story.
As a career Accountant, I always struggled working with supervisors who expected you to slave away day in and day out without extra pay or extra appreciation. Further, they often managed by the “do what I tell you because I said so” mentality and that does not work well for me.
I rose in the ranks until becoming an Accounting Manager, at which time I started to ponder whether there isn’t a more effective way to do business. That’s when I realized if I can lead a team as I’d like to be led, all will work out. This is not the case; there is always someone else managing you. For many of our clients at Cloud Friday, this is a common reason for becoming self-employed or a business owner. The same was true for me.
I’m excited to be joining the Cloud Friday team! I’m an experienced Accountant with a strong background in SaaS. I spent five years developing my skills in a small but growing company where I managed several aspects of the Accounting & Finance office, with an especial focus on the Sales to Cash process.
I forged strong relationships and spearheaded policy & process changes to several workflows to facilitate efficiency and address cross-training needs. Through this, I got to see the inner workings of business in a very tangible way. But I wanted to see more of a direct impact with my work, and that search has lead me here.
When I’m not at my desk, I enjoy hiking, microbreweries, and taking international adventures with my family. I love to help people solve problems and find efficiencies. How can Cloud Friday help you? I’m glad you asked.
I am pleased to be a part of the Cloud Friday team. I enjoy helping small and medium-sized businesses in any way I can. I started my professional career at the Federal Reserve Bank and moved to a 10-year career at the corporate headquarters of a nationwide bank both while still in college.
I earned my MBA during that career but after starting a family I realized that I wanted to focus on smaller businesses where I could be more invested and involved with people and the bottom line. I’m proud to say that I’m in a new phase of my life in which my priorities and skills are even more focused.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve had experience in sales, training, real estate and accounting. I’ve found that I am a numbers person and truly enjoy digging into a company’s books and making sure that their numbers and systems are accurate and efficient. I enjoy the one-on-one with business owners and helping them to succeed.
Social Media Expert
I am thrilled to be a part of the Cloud Friday team!
I am currently a junior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign studying Communications with a minor in PR. Ever since I was younger, I was obsessed with the computer and wanted to find my own ways to make money online.
I started making Twitter accounts, amassing them to thousands of followers and selling them. I then decided to use my social media expertise to help clients (like you!) with their accounts.
I enjoy the content creation, engaging with communities and even the analytics side of things.
I’m delighted to be part of a team so focused on providing the highest level of support for their clients!
After graduating from UCLA with a BA in Economics, I developed a passion for great customer experiences working with an industry-leading OCS in San Diego.
I led the customer service, accounting, and marketing teams as the Customer Experience Manager for nearly five years before realizing I wanted to take the valuable skills I’d developed and help other small businesses stay relevant as business technology continues to progress.
