How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in strategic planning, startup, operations, financial management and marketing. As an entrepreneur, business executive and management consultant, I have helped many people, partners and organizations define their strategy, start up, grow and operate with excellence.

I'm an entrepreneur and consultant, disguised as a veterinarian and scientist! My scientific training gave me a strong background in life sciences and critical thinking.  My business experiences have included founding and growing my own veterinary practice which grew to over 200 team members, commercial and residential real estate development and investing, management consulting, business development work in a publicly traded company, and my most recent work as a strategy executive in a national veterinary company with annual revenues of several hundred million dollars.  In this last role as a strategy executive, I helped the company form through a four way merger and then grow about 4 times in size over 5 years, and I led marketing, mergers and acquisitions, diagnostics, and strategic alliances among other functions.

My management consulting practice was/is for businesses of all types and scale ranging from helping founders test ideas to helping partners better define and manage their partnerships to finding solutions to accomodate and facilitate growth.  These solutions are wide and varied ranging from real estate development for new facilities to identifying and solving gaps in operations to identifying and making new key hires to improving culture and improving financial reporting and management.

I'm relatively new to Bozeman, but have lived all over the country ranging from my upbringing on a family farm in Ohio to founding my veterinary practice in Annapolis Maryland, to spending the last 15 years or so in about 5 states in the west.

I'm excited to be here in Bozeman and looking forward to helping entrepreneurs through SCORE.
