Professional Experience30+ years Working Contractually over the last thirteen years, my particular talent of completing tasks assigned accurately and in time allotted if not sooner has saved those firms monies at the front and back end. I have also been adept at finding potential fraud while cleaning up and implementing upgrades for a wide range of both public and private entities which has proven invaluable for the firms for which I have worked. My ability to grasp the situation quickly has enabled me to quicken the anticipated time expected to correct and/or catch up businesses that face changes and /or reductions in staff or staff not adequately trained.
