I was desperate to get better at Excel after clocking late hours at Ernst & Young. After graduating with an MBA from INSEAD, I perfected my Excel and problem solving craft as a general manager at a leading financial services firm.

I am now a co-founder of Efficient Excel and excited to bring all we’ve learned to you!
