About
My Bio
I have chosen the categories below to show the various aspects of my professional career.  "I've been around awhile," one might say (yes, I am smiling!) and have a broad range of experience as a result.  Always curious about everything, I endeavor to seek knowledge wherever I can find it.

I have been an instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College since 1987 and teach in two departments of Business Administration:  The Supervisory Management Department, and the Small Business Department.  Having developed several courses for the junior college, I teach an assortment of courses:
  • Quantitative Skills- Math
  • Recordkeeping and Cash Flow Management
  • Pre-Business Fundamentals
  • Starting a Business
  • Financial Basics
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Business Ethics
  • Body Language
  • Planning & Controlling

Gayle Goldstone as AdvisorI have been working with business owners and managers in a consulting capacity since 1983.  My mission is:

To provide advice and guidance to business owners and managers in a caring, educational and motivational way, while sustaining my own profits and supporting my total independence.

With an MBA in Management and an undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Quantitative Analysis, I firmly believe the numbers have it. My degree required me to focus in all major areas of business including:
  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Business Law
  • Computer Sciences
  • Statistics
  • Operations Research

While still in college, I had opportunities to work as an accounting analyst and statistician in manufacturing. Shortly after graduating with a B.S. in Business Administration with an option in Quantitative Methods, I worked in electronics manufacturing as a controller and financial analyst for ten years.  During that time in corporate America, I was fortunate enough to work in growing companies and had exposure to all of the elements involved with growth.  It was invaluable experience to prepare me for my own consulting practice.  Ever the entrepreneur, I did endeavor to obtain my MBA before striking out on my own in 1983.

I have been an active community volunteer.  I serve on the SRJC Business Advisory Committee, as well as served on several non-profit boards in recent years.  I am a member of the HTCIA (High-Tech Crime Investigation Assn.) and volunteer my time to local and state agencies in the investigation of white-collar crime as it relates to business operations and computers.   I also served on the Citizen’s Advisory Committee for Sonoma County’s General Plan Update 2020.
