Full bio
Since 2002 I have served as the Regional Director of the Ohio Small Business Development Center at Columbus State. I hold a Bachelor’s degree from The University of North Alabama, with majors in Economics and Finance and a Master’s degree from The Ohio State University in Public Administration. I spent the first 10 years of my professional career in banking and financial services. In 1999, I joined the Greater Columbus Chamber in the position of Executive Director of the Columbus Venture Network. In this capacity I led the organization’s efforts to increase the level of equity financing available to early stage businesses. Given my background in the investment space I endeavor to help prepare entrepreneurs to seek and obtain equity financing.
