Passionate. Not the term one might equate to an accountant but it describes Minda. Minda does not just look at the numbers she is passionate about the organization and works to improve the mission of the group. Minda continually seeks to optimize performance while challenging the organization to grow. Over the past five plus years I have worked with Minda I have learned much more from her than accounting. I will miss working with her when she leaves the Friends’ board later this year and wish her all the best.
Minda was hired during a transition period to help us prepare for our first audit. She was very good at coming in and quickly assessing the situation. She made a plan, got the department organized and stayed with us through the audit, which we passed. She helped write and implement process documents. During this time she exhibited a wide breadth of knowledge so we brought her back again to act as interim Controller while we did a job search. I would absolutely recommend bringing in Minda as a consultant for anyone with a need for this service. A huge advantage is that she is also a lot of fun.
Minda is a very talented Interim Controller. She quickly grasps what needs to be done, is able to pull together the needed information, and has always left behind improved accounting processes, trained staffs and improved management information systems. She is a delight to work with and works well with individuals with diverse styles and points of view. I strongly recommend her for any accounting related project that she defines within her field of interest.
We hired Minda to set up the accounting system for our new company, NaturoMedica. There was some complexity involved in the system set up because our company has both a medical clinic and a retail operation. Minda was highly knowledgeable and set up an efficient accounting system that we still use today. Minda is a pleasure to work with and is a true professional.
