"The best part of my job is taking a tour of a business and listening to stories of how that owner built the company. I have a passion for learning and for helping people, thus I like to really “dig in” and understand my clients, their business and how I can help. I’m honest and candid so my clients can always expect straight answers/advice & quick responses."
