Through my position as an SBDC Director I provide a team of professionals helping small business owners determine the feasibility, start, grow, or sell their business. We provide real time education for business owners to acheive their goals. I am certified as both a NxLevel Instructor and Profit Mastery facilitator, both of which assist with financial literacy and building better business plans. I have also been certified and recertified as a certified business counselor by the AzSBDC Network. Under my direction my Center has acheived the Center of Success every year since it’s inception for exceeding every goal. In 2010 I was also awarded the State Star award as the top performer in capital formation and customer satisfaction. I have managed the Center’s budget and operations successfully and without any major findings since my hire. The Center has traditionally doubled our goals overall as negotiated by our Network and the SBA. Our goal is to help our clients to prepare their business to be successful 3 years from now, and not just survive another week. I hope to keep building my skills with professional development opportunities as well as share what I am doing with others. I have had the opportunity of many professional development opportunities usually numbering over 50 hours per year.
