I am a Seattle native and University of Washington graduate with a degree in business and finance. I began my career as an accountant for a local computer manufacturer, then moved on as controller for a heavy construction company. From there I took on the role of accounting and IT manager for an event production company. Eventually I left and cofounded a production company of my own with a business partner. After three years I sold my interest in the company to my partner and became an account manager for a privately held asset based lender in Bellevue Washington. This was my first opportunity as a business lender and found it to be extremely rewarding. From there I joined another asset based lender, which was part of a regional bank. That bank was soon acquired by a large national bank and I left to join a large community bank based in Spokane Washington as a commercial banker in Bellevue. After spending nearly 5 years at that bank I moved on to a smaller Seattle based community bank. I currently work for a small business bank located in Seattle.
Over the years it has been my passion to help business owners reach their financial goals and act as an advocate on their behalf. I cherish my role as financial advisor and mentor to start-up businesses and those interested in entering the banking profession.
I sincerely hope you find value in my courses and I wish you much success!
