Susan began her career in corporate accounting over 18 years ago as an auditor/forensic accountant primarily focused on providing qualitative analysis of existing records ensuring accuracy and internal consistency and correlation of recorded historical financial data for management reporting. Over the course of her career, Susan has gained experience in all facets of corporate GAAP accounting including payroll, accrual and cash-based businesses, financial preparation, audit support, and process improvement. Before joining Pearlstone Partners, Susan served as Senior Accountant for HouseMaster LLC (a North American home inspections franchisor), and its eight affiliated companies, where she became the primary point of contact for all 175+ franchisees (both domestic and international) managing their accounts receivable/collections, currency conversion, franchise agreements, account reconciliation and financials for all affiliated companies. Susan was instrumental in developing the company’s franchise reporting software which allows franchisees to report monthly royalties online, and automating several accounting functions which increased timely revenue collections significantly. When Susan is not busy crunching numbers, she is an avid cross fit athlete, wife, Mother of eight, and Grandmother of one.
