In her various roles, she was responsible for developing operating structures, establishing and overseeing internal controls, and focusing on budgets and expenditures. In 2011 she joined Fishman Haygood LLP as administrator, where, for the past 11 years, she managed all aspects of the business functions, from accounting and financial to partner additions, IT systems, and physical facilities.
