My journey to the world of consulting has had several twists and turns. I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in accounting; immediately, I realized that public accounting was not what I wanted in a career. 


So, I set off to find my calling. 


Through my work in internal audit, investigative accounting, and in several accounting departments, I discovered my passion: family-business practices and/or the private sector. This demographic allowed me to get my hands dirty while working and managing a variety of departments: operations, inside and outside sales, customer service, accounting, and IT.  Within 5 years of graduating college, I was a Vice President and C-Level Executive managing nearly 75 employees.


After years of leading and optimizing several companies, I decided what I really enjoyed most was helping companies and owners focus on what they love most: their business. By helping companies rediscover their "why," my goal was simple: to lessen the burden of back-office activities by helping them focus on their goals. 


This is why Advocatus Consulting, LLC was birthed. 


What I do for companies is simple. I provide leadership and guidance to owners and executives by assisting them in maximizing their profits through strategic yet efficient operational systems that drive processes. Whether it is through executive/strategic coaching, fractional executive leadership, or a complete review and overhaul of your processes and procedures, my goal is to get clients excited about their business again while helping them sleep better at night, knowing that all of their "ducks are in a row."


Give me a call.
