About Me

I began working with small business in 2008, with a focus on solution based lending for business’ that did not fit in typical banking parameters. In 2011, I joined Huntington as I realized this was a bank that would truly service the community and help entrepreneurs grow.

I try to achieve solutions by a collaborative approach to lending and really understanding client needs. In my career I have financed numerous starts ups, expansions, acquisitions, and good will transactions through the use of SBA financing.

Outside of my SBA position I am a board member for Revolving Loan Funds for the City of Kent, Bank Financial Advisor of the Coleman Foundation, member of CREW Akron and of the Women’s Business Center of Greater Cleveland, and a banker panel advisor for Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 small business program.
