In addition to my role teaching Finance 3004 I am currently the Director of Finance and Administration for Student Involvement and Leadership at East Carolina University. I create and manage a combined annual budget of $8 million dollars with a professional staff of 8 people that oversee finance, human resources, administration, and contract management across three departments. This includes 150 individual budgets and a wide variety of revenue sources including generated revenue, student fees, and state funds. I also manage the human resource administration for around 70 professional staff and approximately 200 student workers.

Prior to working at East Carolina University I was a Vice President at First Citizens Bank of North Carolina where I managed multiple locations of a large, privately held bank with a staff of up to 18 people. I aggressively hired and coached people to progressively higher positions. I managed a portfolio of over four thousand individuals and businesses with $80 million dollars in loans and deposits. I analyzed and consulted with hundreds of businesses in my career to aid them in their growth and development.
