I am passionate about the electric, water, wastewater, gas, and broadband business! I work with electric co-ops and utilities in helping them improve efficiencies in accounting and reporting, cost of service and rate development, training, and business processes.

My goal is to share what I have learned about industry best practices in serving your organization. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the issues you want to address in your organization and how I can help you remedy those challenges.
