Before starting my own business in 2004, I spent 25 years in banking in New York and San Francisco. Much of the focus of my work was in international business, product development, marketing, and operational management. When the business division I was leading was relocated to the east coast, I decided it was time to follow my entrepreneurial interests. It was one of the best decisions I ever made! I co-founded an imaging and scanning firm that transforms offices into paperless environments. Offering businesses an eco-conscious service has made this enterprise extremely rewarding, and had come to realize that personal satisfaction is a pivotal component of defining my own success. At SCORE, I counsel clients and business mentor them on the business startup process, business plan, marketing, operations, lending options, web/apps design and content review. My greatest passion as a counselor is to provide clients who have a strong commitment to succeed with the tools, resources and encouragement they need. This process typically does not take place in one session, but over a series of collaborative follow-up meetings.
