As an asset based lender, commercial banker, and business owner, I help my clients achieve their financial goals by recognizing their needs and finding solutions that make sense. I feel it’s important to understand the industry of my clients and build a relationship of open communication and trust. I also enjoy acting as a financial adviser to business owners and doing whatever it takes to help them succeed. Now more than ever, thinking outside the box to meet the needs of my clients is what sets me apart from the competition.
My unique background as both a lender and business owner allows me to understand both sides of the relationship. This experience has given me unique insights into alternative forms of financing that are available to business owners.
I’ve been a lifetime resident of the Pacific Northwest and currently living in Renton, WA. I love making the Puget Sound area my home and taking advantage of all it has to offer.
