Certified Guerrilla Marketing Coach, 6 Sigma, TOPS (Technology of People), Print, Get Clients Now, and My Own Business. Enrolled in Project Management Certification Course.
Utilizing 20 plus years business ownership experience I help clients find, acquire and retain profitable customers. I do this via one on one coaching and consulting on projects to find solutions to small businesses. I write business plans, lead to create mission statements and strategic plans. I market myself as “The Affordable MBA” – to provide consulting to businesses at realistic prices—bringing professional consulting services to people who never thought they could afford it.
Successfully held a variety of positions all utilizing strong sales, management and service sills. Breadth of experience demonstrates the ability to accept drive and implement change.

I have experience managing a multi state region. Excellent skills in pioneering and targeting key accounts.

Successful in multilevel sales environments, develop and achieve sales and profit goals, volume, revenue, installation cost projections and manage other variable costs.
Very experienced in distribution, working with independent representatives, and marketing to the A/D community (architect/designer).
My association as a founder, Co Chapter, US Green Building Council (the administrator of the LEED rating system) gives me further experience to help businesses find the market for enviro-conscious products. During my tenure we competed successfully to bring the national conference to Denver – bringing almost 15,000 international guests. Successfully competed for grants to hire our first Executive Director, and in creating sponsorship and grant programs that made this chapter one of the most well funded in the country. While this is my most recent nonprofit experience, I have been involved on board level as a volunteer position with a nonprofit most my adult life. One of my core beliefs is a responsibility to “give back”.
Other Experience includes restaurant ownership and management. Event management for large events—for clients as Rockies, Broncos and major concerts. This involved handling revenue and accounting for cash, overseeing hiring and training staff. Extensive training skills, maintaining the efficiency of an inexperienced staff with high rate of turnover (volunteers and paid staff). The ability to maintain public relations while calmly diffusing confrontational situation was a mandatory every day occurrence.
