How I can help you

I can help SCORE clients establish virtual businesses, leveraging online tools and resources. I have coached women entrepreneurs for the past 15 years across all aspects of planning, building, and growing their businesses, and I've supported thousands of women and underserved audiences across the US, individually and in groups.

In business school I majored in Marketing and Organization Behavior. In various roles over the years my experience has included recruiting, hiring, managing, and mentoring employees. My media experience was with high level medical professionals, and I prized my performance on my skills in relationship and expectation management.

My greatest strength is in strategy, business modeling and planning, as well as clarifying and achieving realistic goals after defining an achievable "Success Destination." I work with startups (new owners) and owners of mature businesses wishing to grow, as well as owners intending to exit in the foreseeable future who want to maximize their ROI. One of the hardest things for a business owner is to avoid getting caught in the weeds, and keeping a longterm vision for their business.
