Sunday also assesses and evaluates the financial performance with regard to long-term operational goals, budgets, and forecasts.
Sunday’s collaborative nature has made her an integral part of the senior executive team, where decision making is crucial. With the ever-changing global economy, Sunday implements essential data needed to identify, develop, and execute analysis of business initiatives or new service offerings.

Prior to First Command, Sunday started her career in the hospitality industry. As an accountant with Meristar Hotels and Resorts, she managed various centralized accounting functions and held several progressive roles throughout her tenure.
At the time Sunday started with First Command in 2005, she was able to test her skills and created a successful analytics team that helped bring the company forward into the power of data and analytics. Although Sunday talks numbers and data, it was the heartfelt mission of the company that spoke to her. The mission of coaching those who serve is close to her heart, because her father served in the Marine Corps.
