As CEO of SmartBiz Loans, the #1 online bank marketplace for SBA loans and a venture backed fintech company, I’m passionate about helping small business owners across the U.S. get the funding they need to achieve their business dreams. With broad experience in financial technology, medical technology and consumer industries I understand the challenges entrepreneurs face when seeking low-cost capital and how the right financing at the right time can be a game changer.
My previous leadership positions include Chief Revenue Officer at Milton’s Baking, President at Purity Organic, and General Manager at Align Technology. I started my career at Procter & Gamble and graduated with honors from Stanford University.
