About Me

I am a Senior SBA Business Development Officer at Huntington Bank specializing in Small Business Administration (SBA) financing for businesses. My daily focus is to assist clients with their lending needs for a variety of purposes through government guaranteed loans.

I began my career in Small Business in 2004 as a branch manager and business development officer at National City Bank which is now PNC Bank. In 2006, I then moved to Chase Bank to focus solely on Business Banking clients to assist with their conventional and SBA credit needs. After building an extensive network of relationships, I was recruited to Bank of America in 2013 where I spent 5 years lending and building relationships small and medium size businesses in the Chicago area.

I completed my Bachelor’s Degree at Northern Illinois University and have undergone several continuing education courses such as Bank of America’s Small Business Certification, an industry recognized credit valuation and certification, Huthwaite’s Effective Selling, and Selling Dynamics.

My passion to help small businesses with their lending needs is evident with every transaction, and will continue to be a resource for clients and referral sources here at Huntington National Bank.
