Through over twenty-five years of professional accounting experience, Heather has cultivated a unique perspective in the industry. During her time in public accounting auditing non-profits and government contractors she developed a broad understanding of the benefits of a systematic approach to meeting federal rules and regulations. She has lead companies and startups of all sizes into improved efficiencies and automations, all while improving internal and external processes.
Heather’s ability to understand the dependencies of business is what allows her to creatively customize a plan unique to the needs of each client. She’s not just looking at audits, but at the potential within a team, the efficiencies of processes, and individual needs of each company that comes to her.
As president of Golden Gait LLC, she has built a team that provides financial, accounting and related administrative services, and solutions for small to mid-size government contractors struggling to achieve or maintain FAR and DCAA compliance. In addition, she now offers her professional expertise through consulting and training services and e-Guides aimed at helping new and established businesses thrive.
In her spare time, Heather enjoys time at the barn with her 2 horses, staying fit and healthy, reading, and exploring the creative arts. She’s also in the process of starting a non-profit focused on the rescue and rehabilitation of off-the-track Thoroughbred horses.Connect with Heather on LinkedIn
