How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in marketing, operations and finance. As a banker, I have helped countless small and medium size businesses in the areas of marketing, operations and finance. Over my career, I have provided financial management support, business development assistance and marketing experience to many family owned and closely-held businesses; as well as, not-for-profits and real estate construction partnerships. In addition to my professional activities, I have served as a board member of the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Chicago and as a member of the investment committee. I hold a deep sense of community. As a mentor for SCORE, I have provided advice and served as a trusted advisor to many entrepreneurs. Lets get started.
