The variety of positions held and the experience gained through her 10 years with AMR Corp make Tricia much more well-versed than the run-of-the-mill CPA with no experience other than Public Accounting. She has gained the kind of experience that can only come from having held many different positions, having reported to the highest levels of Management and having dealt with the many issues which today’s small business owners are confronting; employees, budgets, deadlines, profitability, cash flow.
Tricia specializes in General Business Consultation for businesses needing to focus on profitability, the management of staff and the development of effective and efficient policies and procedures. Her approach is to first assist each client in identifying a clear vision of their goals and then designing a strategy that stays true to their goals while prioritizing the issues that need to be addressed in order to affect dynamic and progressive change.
