About Me

 

I have to admit that it was with fear and trepidation that I left Syracuse with my MBA in hand and set off for my new life in New York City. I received a job offer from what was then Citicorp to work as a financial analyst in their credit card department and had no idea of what to expect of either New York or life in such a big corporation.

 

As it turned out, it was the start of a wonderful and exciting career that took me down a number of different paths.

 

 My experience as a Senior Executive at Prudential Financial and my management experience at Citicorp and Digital Equipment (now Hewlett Packard) gave me the skills that allowed me to build my own consulting company, Amore. Inc.  By accepting change as a challenge I have been able to build a successful career and develop expertise in a number of areas. My experience is in Compliance, Financial Planning and Analysis, Document Development, Project Management (including building a Project Management Office), and Strategic Planning. At Prudential Bank I was even a roving manager filling in short-term gaps when a senior manager resigned or was on leave.

 

More recently I have enjoyed working as an independent consultant on a contract basis. As a consultant I worked in the Compliance Office of Clark Atlanta University. Working at a nonprofit University has been an exciting experience. In addition to my consulting experience at CAU I have worked for a number of organizations developing presentations, business documents, and website content.

 

In 2004, I started a blog on Italy, a country I have loved since living there as a child. Over the years my blog has evolved into the leading social networking site on Italy, AmoreTravelGuides.com. I also created and develop content for DiscoverWalking.com. 

 

Through tenacity and luck I have built a career that continues to bring me great pleasure. But, it is not all about work so I take time to enjoy a good game of tennis, hikes with my golden retriever and reading books of all types. In addition to trips to Italy and other overseas locales I enjoy spending time in Nova Scotia and at the beaches of North Carolina. Having grown up in Pittsburgh I am an avid Steeler fan and make it back at least once a year to stock up on all things black and gold.

 

As an experienced consultant with a proven track record of anticipating, identifying, analyzing, and solving problems in a variety of settings I am focused on helping my clients meet their goals. With a background in compliance, finance, document development, project management and strategic planning I am uniquely qualified to help you be successful. I am available to you on an as-needed basis as a highly skilled, cost-effective resource. I produce real solutions and tangible results.
