ExperienceSmall Business Lender, Community Economic Developer
I’m an alumni of Berea College where I received my degree in Business Administration. After graduating from Berea, I began my professional career working directly with small businesses throughout South Eastern Kentucky. Throughout my ten years as a project specialist I worked with hundreds of businesses directly on ways to start, maintain, or grow their business. As a community economic developer, I would work with local communities to identify their local assets, and build their local economies by valuing and capitalizing on those same assets. My philosophy is that every community should be intentional about supporting the development of its creative entrepreneurial community. Without them we would all be dependent on someone else being able to address what our communities needs and opportunities are.
