An Introduction

Hello, MY NAME IS Colleen

As the founder + data lady of The Crew Consultants, I began my career on Wall Street as an investment banker specializing in mergers and acquisitions before being tapped to focus on strategic communications and analyses for the Head of Investment Banking at Lehman Brothers/Barclays Capital.

After four years in finance, I headed west to Chicago to fuse my love for numbers and storytelling. I worked on public relations campaigns at Edelman and served as the Marketing Director at an education-focused nonprofit.

My diverse background working with founders, small teams, and complex organizations makes me a versatile advisor. I quickly assess situations and use data to help founders solve problems and make smarter, more informed decisions.

Originally from New York City, I graduated with a BSBA in Finance and Accounting from the University of Richmond. I enjoy running, photography, and am working to improve my culinary skills.


The Crew Consultants have delved into our financials so we know costs and sales by product and by channel. It’s a roadmap to streamlined inventory and more profitable sales.

Colleen established meaningful reports to identify trends and give me a real-time pulse on our financial position. Plus, our new organized accounting system saved lots of time and energy when preparing our taxes!

Happy Clients

The financial assessment and guidance has helped me sharpen my focus on delivering the services I enjoy while providing the best return on my time.
