JICNY and Jodi and Gavin personally have provided me with highly valued support in a myriad of ways, since I arrived in New York a decade ago from Australia via Chicago. Their generosity has included hosting my shevah brachot in their home and Gavin learning Gemara with me one-on-one. In addition, when I launched my management consulting firm, I joined JICNY’s networking group. This led to two new clients within a couple of months and wonderful network of professionals I rely on for things such as technology support and accounting advice. Career wise, I design and deliver business growth for clients as a hands-on, collaborative management consultant through my firm VGC Advisors. I am passionate about making a difference through strategic planning, marketing, and pricing projects for clients in any industry.
