VP and CFO, Executive
I am thrilled and proud to be joining Tenacious Holdings as VP and CFO. I know (after just 30 days) that I have joined an organization that has been well managed through exceptional growth and a finance team that is strong, professional and smart – all a credit to my fabulous predecessor Leon Hoffman who has retired after 22 years with the company.
I have over thirty years of Accounting and Finance experience; in the last ten years I have also had experience as a general manager for an international business and have led Operations, Quality and HR for a number of smaller organizations. I have had both public and private company experience, and started my career as a CPA in public accounting.
I work best as a strategic, financial partner for growth with a smart, dynamic cross functional leadership team committed to strong brands and good people. I believe that is exactly the sort of team and company that I have found here at Ergodyne!
My strongest memory of an ambition was to be the first Female President of the United States. I changed my mind pretty quickly after volunteering on several different (unsuccessful and not to be named here) campaigns

ALARM CLOCK SETTING
5:45 am which gives me time for a short walk, a little earlier on the days I go to the gym

Went Back Country camping with bears, mosquitos and David in Denali National Park – was there for the summer solstice reading without a flashlight at 2 a.m.
