Chief Accounting Officer at 14 West
“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” – John Wooden
I spent many years working in Finance and Management positions before finding 14 West, but when I did, it was a perfect fit. As the Chief Accounting Officer, I have been given the opportunity to lead the accounting and finance team in supporting each of our clients and centralized businesses with day-to-day services.
Needless to say, the opportunities at 14 West are endless. They are committed to providing each employee with the freedom to use their skills to do what they love, both in and out of the office. For me, that means coaching my kids’ sports teams, leading and mentoring at my Church in Timonium, and staying active in supporting my community.
I have grown up with many examples of both positive and negative leadership styles which have helped shape me as a leader. I try to embody a “lead by example” approach which includes active listening, hard work, asking questions, a positive attitude, and continuous learning. I believe that a team with these qualities can overcome almost any obstacle.
The 14 West Accounting and Finance teams are doing our best to set the bar when it comes to value-added customer service for the businesses we support. We try to provide more than “just the numbers” and take it a step further to help them navigate the operational challenges they face by sharing our intimate knowledge of the underlying data.
