I am a native of Lubbock, Texas and the founder of Caprock Business Consulting. I started Caprock Business Consulting because clients kept telling me that the financial models and business valuations I prepared for them were among the best they have ever seen.
I have worked as a consultant in some of Texas’ largest accounting firms where I found my passion of helping business owners with financial analysis, market researchand analysis, and business valuation. My goal is to earn business for life and I am committed to providing you high quality services with integrity and respect. I look forward to getting to know you and helping your company reach its maximum potential.
I have helped hundreds of business owners and attorneys with financial analysis and business valuations needs for gift and estate tax, litigation support, and transaction consulting. I have also valued asset-holding entities such as family limited partnerships for wealth management and protection purposes. I have worked across multiple industries including restaurants, retail, technology, manufacturing, health care, energy, and service providers.
