I have PhD in civil engineering specializing in construction management and I have frequently overseen the budgeting/accounting of similar projects throughout my career. I have worked for a US water district preparing the budget, schedule, and estimates for construction. I was also the project controls director for world bank-funded projects to revitalize water and wastewater facilities abroad. For these projects, I prepared all of the schedules, budgets, and estimates for renovation. As a project controls director, I oversaw $750 million of projects. As a lead scheduler, I was responsible for budgeting and scheduling $50 million of work. I also worked on costing, estimating and scheduling projects from $2 million to $1 billion. I have served as CFO/Finance and Accounting Director for companies with revenue ranging from $6 to $150 million per year. I also have a JD emphasizing contractual work in the construction environment, and multiple years of work experience with various engineering, construction, and technology firms as well as experience teaching construction law. I am able to compare invoices against work orders and other documentation and help determine whether work invoiced was actually completed. I can also compare schedules, estimates, project plans, specs, and other documents to ensure a complete review and proper comparison.
