I always loved numbers - my favorite classes in high school were algebra and calculus and I scored a perfect score on the math section of the ACT. I received my BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Duke University in 2002. Upon graduation, I worked for six years as a management consultant at Accenture. Once I decided to leave the world of consulting, I moved onto corporate finance, and worked for Cricket's finance department for four years, eventually being promoted to Director of Finance. I am passionate about startups and founded 3 while I was working at Accenture and Cricket. I left Cricket in 2014 and founded two companies including Finance Pals in 2015. Everything seems to have come together perfectly and now I can truly follow my passion of helping startups and small business with their finances.

A very common mistake I see from startup and small business owners is they manage their business by checking their bank account.
