About Linda


Bio

I have worked for 34 years in the Energy field mostly working in accounting functions. My final position before retirement was VP and Controller. My passion in my work was helping less experienced accountants work through problems and finding solutions and helping them learn different approaches to problem solving.

I have worked for 34 years in the Energy field mostly working in accounting functions. My final position before retirement was VP and Controller. My passion in my work was helping less experienced accountants work through problems and finding solutions and helping them learn different approaches to problem solving.

Having 34 years of accounting experience and many hours spent on special projects, I have seen first hand how accounting supports business objectives and is a strong tool for providing information for key business decision makers. I have worked with people in all areas including operations, finance and top level executives, helping them understand accounting basics and what the numbers mean from their perspective.

Accounting and business classes can seem overwhelming but once you understand some basic principals, it becomes much easier to understand. I have helped many people in my accounting career become better accountants by sharing my knowledge.

Soon after graduating college, I studied for and passed the CPA exam on the first try. That six months of review made me realize what I either wasn't taught or missed regarding how what I learned all tied together. That knowledge made me a better accountant and mentor for others. I believe I can use my passion and understanding of accounting to help students who either want to be an accountant or just need some basics to get through a class.

I have 34 years of business experience. Although my career was in accounting, I was involved in numerous projects throughout my career including system implementations, mergers, divestitures, construction projects, and strategic planning. I attended board committee meetings, including audit committee and compensation committee meetings. I worked on stockholder communications and worked with outside consultants in managing projects and performing numerous valuations as required for financial reporting. In my final position, I managed an accounting division of 100 plus employees. I believe my work experience has given me significant business experience and knowledge.
