How I can help you

As a small business entrepreneur that has successfully shepherded independent retail and wholesale  concerns to profitability in a dynamic and competitive industry, I can offer support in creative thinking and in identifying challenges that may or may not have been anticipated. My resilience has been shaped through adaptability and a willingness to experiment with new strategies.

In the context of managing retail brick and mortar stores, my strengths are in  Marketing, Human resources, Operations, Consumer Behavior and Customer Relations.

I served for a number of years on the Chapel Hill / Carrboro Chamber of Commerce.

In Black Mountain I volunteer with:
