How I Can Help You

I can help you with starting a restaurant or mobile food truck business. Professionally, I served as the Tampa District Manager for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Hotels and Restaurants, a state government regulatory agency responsible for regulating the hospitality industry within the state of Florida. In this capacity, I was responsible for the daily operations for a district that regulated over 15,000 public food service and public lodging establishments within a seven-county region in west central Florida. After 21 years with the department, I transitioned to higher education and the private sector where I am currently an adjunct business professor and independent consultant. I have over 25 years of proven leadership experience. I look forward to serving you as your SCORE mentor.
