I am an SBA lender ready to assist you in discovering new opportunities to grow your business. My specialty is guiding small businesses through SBA loan process to promote their business plans and achieve their goals. Through a straight-forward and honest approach, my clients understand the process easily from day one.  

My main focus when working with new clients is assessing each borrower’s needs. Every business I work with is unique, and thus their needs are unique. By first gauging their priorities and goals, I’m able to develop a plan tailored to their situation. This, paired with clear and honest communication, sets us up for success throughout the lending process.  

In my time away from work, I volunteer with several organizations including Rotary Club, Arkansas Human Development Council, Community Navigator, Community Generator, Chamber of Commerce, AR Small Business Development and Technology Center, and AR US Small Business Administration. I also enjoy spending time with my dogs, visiting with friends, and swimming in the nearby Buffalo National River.
