My passion for travel and for experiencing cultures worldwide has allowed me to see firsthand some of the struggles faced by those in developing nations. I am therefore honored to serve as Administrative Director for Cooper/Smith, whose ultimate mission is to improve health outcomes for those populations.
As Administrative Director I provide leadership and management support for all financial and operational functions, including coordination of the firm’s accounting and HR service providers. Additionally, I perform day-to-day bookkeeping, grant reporting, and assist in hiring.
Prior to joining the organization, I was owner/operator of a small business for 11 years, during which time I was responsible for business start-up, marketing, accounting, customer service, and sales for a four-state territory. I also served for 10 years as a marketing manager and consultant for an Atlanta-based small business, and have worked as a tax professional for a leading nationwide tax preparation company. I currently serve as property manager for personal real-estate holdings, and I retain an insurance broker’s license.
