After earning my Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting and Finance from Austin Peay State University (Let's Go Peay!) and an MBA in Accounting from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I began my career in non-profit and corporate organizations, including FedEx, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where I've gained over 20 years of professional accounting and audit experience.
Even more than experience, I have a passion for people and seeing them realize their dreams. Foster Financial Management was created in 2008 to help small businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals achieve their financial goals. I'm committed to helping small business owners realize their fullest potential without being overwhelmed with the day-to-day accounting obligations. I am also committed to helping individuals prevent or break free from the vicious cycle of financial bondage by learning and applying simple, biblical principles in their personal finances.
Outside of work, I'm an enthusiastic wife and mother of two, and enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, crafts, cooking and photography. I volunteer and serve on the boards of several local organizations and serve in my church's marriage and counseling ministry alongside my husband.
As a small business owner, you are in business because you are good at what you do. Your expertise involves the product and/or service you offer. Why spend time managing your business' finances when that time should be focused on making your business the best it can be?
Poor financial management is often cited as the reason for most small business failures. Often the business owner or member of the business team manages this crucial function because they want to maintain complete control of their business, they're afraid that outsourcing the accounting would be too expensive, or a combination of the two. What they don't realize is that outsourcing is a useful management tool that can save a business both time and money while preventing potential failure. When you outsource to the right accountant, it can be the difference between survival and profitable success.
The vision of Foster Financial Management is to provide financial services and principles of money management that will empower, encourage and lead small businesses and individuals towards realizing their financial goals.
It is the mission of Foster Financial Management to point small businesses and individuals in the right financial direction through dependable, affordable outsourced accounting solutions and financial management tools. At Foster Financial Management, all clients are treated with courtesy and integrity. I am committed and dedicated to providing efficient and honest financial services that our clients can take pride in.
