How I can help you

I can help in all areas of business operations, marketing, and finance.

As an Operations Manager, I opened and managed a food service operation for eight years. Food service operations have high failure rates and low profit margins, with my expertise we can identify and grow your target market, create your financial statements, operating budgets which can be used to increase your business performance. 

I have a Master of Science from Utah State University in Applied Economics where I analyzed the consumer price trends of fresh produce for farmers' markets and grocery stores. We used this analysis to look at the consumer affordabilty and producer profitability for fresh produce. I have also been a collaborator for Money Management and Business Management Cirriculum that is directed towards Native American producers.

I believe that small businesses create strong community connections, and I am happy to be a part of that connection.
