Located in the West Michigan market – Grand Rapids – Holland, I have been working in business banking since 1993. Although I have worked on both conventional and SBA financing, the SBA financing has been the most satisfying in helping more clients follow their dream of business ownership, given the challenges facing small business owners today.
I have been with Huntington since November 2008, solely focused on SBA financing as a product specialist. Although I work on all types of SBA financing opportunities, my lending focus has been on acquisition financing as well as debt restructuring and expansion requests. SBA financing has given me more opportunities to come back to borrowers with a “yes” to assist with their financing needs. I have also enjoyed working with the local SCORE and SBDC offices on presenting “SBA financing” seminars for most of the time that I have been with Huntington.
Prior to Huntington, I worked as a small business lender in Jackson and Holland, MI markets, providing SBA and conventional financing solutions. I have my BSBA and MBA in Finance from Bowling Green State University and am the Community Service Chairman for the Holland Rotary Noon Club since 2010.
