Where It All Started
I started my corporate career in the 80’s working with a Fortune 500 Technology Outsourcing Company. I have always loved technology and aligning processes to create a competitive advantage in the market.
With the ongoing evolution and advancements of technology, over my career I developed a mindset of curiosity, change and advancement.
Expanding and Learning Business Globally
Over the years I held executive roles in the corporate environment and traveled the world studying, collaborating, and doing business.
Some of my best business experiences were during my travels to Beijing, Canada, Costa Rica, Budapest, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy.
I realize now that this was the birth of my desire to be an entrepreneur.
After graduating from the Executive MBA program with a focus on International Business, I wanted to help small and mid-market businesses grow and scale. I started consulting and advising executive leaders in the community, teaching business classes, and serving on community boards – all while working full time.
I built strong partnerships and leveraged my relationships internationally to collaborate globally to grow and scale businesses which created a “win/win” for all stakeholders.
