Wow, I started my Business Central journey back in 2000 when the software was called Navision Financials (pre-Microsoft purchase). I left Accounting to consult and implement ERP systems and got connected with a Navision Partner. Starting my 22nd year of working in Dynamics NAV/Business Central I am the Manager – Operations and Financial ERP with a concentration in Manufacturing and Supply Chain industries. I have completed hundreds and hundreds of implementations over the 2 decades and have met great co-workers, companies, users, industry experts, and ISV’s along the way. I have prided myself on staying abreast of industry knowledge and to become immersed within the community to both consult, support, and train companies and their users. I have taken all the old Navision certification exams, the Microsoft 2003/2004 exams, and the most recent MBS-800 certification for Navision/Business Central. I love a great challenge in solving requirements, bottlenecks, or underlying business practices at companies utilizing Dynamics NAV/Business Central. Below is a quick summary of myself:

  • Over 22 years Architecting, Consulting, Implementing, and Managing Dynamics NAV/Business Central projects. Currently Manager – Operations and Financial ERP at Wipfli
  • Over 250 NAV/Business Central Implementations in Manufacturers, Supply Chain (WMS), Food and Beverage, Jewelry, Retail, Service, Oil and Gas, Chemical, Industrial Equipment, and Home Goods Industries
  • Over 16 years as an Accountant (CMA) in a variety of positions (VP of Finance, Director of Finance, Controller, and Director of Operations)

"I want to serve the community just for the sake of it. It's so gratifying to see what I have done and will do is helping others in the Dynamics NAV/BC community at large. Trust me after 21 years being a part of the NAV/BC community I have a raw passion that fuels my love for the software and the people I interact with. Plain and simply I have a burning desire to make a difference in the Business Application community and I want to put my talents and the best version of myself at the service of the community. People who know me and have heard of me know my good habits, openly to help others, share my knowledge, and seek out opportunities to volunteer and become an influencer and advocate for the business application and community."
