I have experience with investment management and advisory, financial planning, risk management, lending, management consulting, and enjoy working with individuals and management teams to help them reach their growth and profitability goals. Currently I own my own business and work with individuals and small businesses in a consulting capacity but when volunteering as a mentor with SCORE we do not charge for business advisory services.
