How I can help you

I can help you in starting a new retail business or obtaining a government contract. I have experience in the steps to take in getting a retail store up and running such as selecting selling platforms, social media, inventory management, price points… boutique located in two locations (Illinois & Iowa) as well as selling on social media. I have 33 years in the Department of Defense Procurement career field supporting Army and Air Force. I was a contracting officer for 20 plus years and retired as the Deputy Chief of Contracting for the Air Force Research Laboratory located in New Mexico. I have procured services, including R & D, and commodities. I’ve created a variety of contracting types, including non- Federal Acquisition Regulation instruments and requests for proposals. I worked with competitive and non- competitive acquisitions and negotiated multi million contracts with the large Aerospace corporations.
