I am a Business Advisor and Management Consultant who has helped entrepreneurs and owner-operators start, scale, and grow their business.
Before joining the Small Business Development Center, I spent over 12 years working for small businesses, non-profits and entrepreneurs across the San Francisco Bay Area. I most recently served as the Business Operations Manager for a commercial real estate firm where I played a major role in the merger of two offices, managed the roll out of new technology, and business plan strategy and implementation.
Following a successful career in operations and project management, primarily in real estate development, I now advise new and existing business owners in the areas of planning, operations, cost analysis, legal structure, finance and economic development. I assist in business plan writing, creating start-up operations, financial projections and analysis. I design and implement workflow processes, training and compliance programs, and responses to RFP/Qs.
I hold a Bachelors in Political Science from San Francisco State University and a Masters in Business Administration from Mills College Graduate School of Business. In my down time you will find me on a golf course, taking a city walk, swimming, or drinking wine! I am WSET Level 2 Certified (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) and can talk about wine until your ears fall off.
