About Me:

I am a member of the NorCal VBOC team as a business consultant and trainer. My areas of expertise consist of entrepreneurial development, fiscal management, strategic planning, marketing, and sales. I have an entrepreneurial background in a family manufacturing/retail business, financial and lending experience in the banking industry. I was the Director of the Business and Entrepreneurship center hosted at Shasta College that served 10 northern counties. I currently work as an entrepreneurship instructor for Shasta College in the business department.

With many family members and friends who have or are currently serving in the military, I could not be more excited for the opportunity to serve our veterans. My goal is to provide any help and resources I can to Veterans who are pursuing their own dreams and goals of starting or growing a business.

I received my M.B.A in Management from CSU, Chico and a bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship from CSU, Chico, I am also a licensed realtor.
