She is adept at financial audits and agreed-upon procedures, and has worked on due diligence reviews, as well as cross-border and local equity offerings. She also has deep experience in the review of internal controls over financial reporting. She has worked with companies engaged in telecommunications, power and energy, oil and gas, real estate, infrastructure (roads and rail), investment holdings, car assembly, food retailing, and media and entertainment, as well as with hospitals, schools, and nonstock, nonprofit organizations.

In addition, MCM is the current Chair of the Metro Manila Geographical Area Office of the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA). She is also in her second term as member of the PICPA National Board. She served as President of the PICPA Western Manila Chapter in 2006-2007.
