"Choose a goal for which you are willing to exchange a piece of your life..."
I’ve been a Business Consultant/ Certified Business Analyst with the Ohio Small Business Development Centers for the past 12 years. I also direct a local SBDC Center, based out of the Economic Development / Planning Commission offices at Newark & Licking County.
As an entrepreneur, business owner and investor,....I've been involved in numorous biz ventures, and gained plenty of "street-smarts" with: start-ups, acquisitions and exits.
Because of my entrepreneurial background,...my expertise lends itself towards: business/ strategic planning, financial analysis, entrepreneurship, and creative financing. Over the years, I’ve helped secure millions of dollars in loans and equity capital for start-up, existing and emerging businesses. I’ve also been a partner in Economic Development and the retention/ expansion of companies throughout Ohio for many years.
I earned my A.A.S. from The Ohio State University, B.S. / Business Management from Park University, Magna Cum Laude, and my CBA from Capital University.
In my spare time….yeah right,…no really,…I balance my work with plenty of play-time to maintain BALANCE. I'm an avid kayaker/ whitewater buff and paddle with two different clubs, as we explore every water source we can get to. I also enjoy: traveling, boating, swimming, bicycling, hiking, working-out, playing piano, writing, singing, finding new biz deals, and spending time with my daughters.
Work hard, like everything depends on you. Have faith, like everything depends on God.
I hope to be able to make a positive impact in the world around me. Helping others attain their goals by being a resource of information and capital.
