I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. Most of my professional experience is in the hospitality industry, with a tilt towards the accounting side. As VP of Finance and Internal Compliance with The Procaccianti Group from 2004 to 2011, I handled the oversight of all hospitality accounting functions for 63 hotels. Prior to this role, I lead the central accounting functions for Crossroads Hospitality, a division of Interstate Hotels with 120 hotels. I also spent quite a bit of time in the Hotel Controller and General Manager roles for several full-service properties throughout Florida and the Midwest over the course of 20 years. An award I am proud of is having earned the “Certified Hospitality Accountant Executive of the Year” from Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals.
