Born and raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, I am a diehard Chicago sports fan. My career started in the Illinois restaurant industry until I got sick of the cold and moved to Tidewater. I am a Navy wife, and my teenage daughter and stepson keep my home life eventful! I cannot wait to work with you!
I grew up in Florida where the weather goes from hot to hotter. In search of the full four-season experience, I moved to Virginia. I have spent almost a decade in construction and have done everything from commercial to residential and even industrial work. I acquired my Class-A license and teamed up with the folks at Red Ladder because I wanted to do things differently than what I had experienced previously in the field. Also, the team here doesn’t make fun of me as much for my love of pumpkin spice lattes.
The bulk of my professional history is in small business. I have opened, restructured, and consulted with multiple restaurants, breweries, and small renovation businesses along the East Coast. I am a native Pittsburgher and diehard Steelers fan (be nice!), but spent a good portion of my 20’s in Key West, FL. I’m really excited to be a part of this amazing team!
I grew up in Hampton Roads but left for college where I received my master’s degree in Project Management. My professional experience includes over 20 years of business in a variety of fields, as well as running several non-profits on the side. I have four rambunctious boys, who eat me out of house and home, so between meal prep, school activities, and the business, I always have my hands full!
Director of Sales
Originally from the outskirts of Philadelphia, I spent the majority of my 20s building out several restaurants and small businesses. I cut my teeth in sales working for a national brand selling property insurance, where I met my lovely wife. Together we own a mobile dog grooming service and breed show dogs on the side. I am extremely excited to be a part of this team, most of whom I have known for years.
Days after I received my doctorate in nuclear engineering, I was notified that I was the heir to the Danish throne. So I immediately sold my 16,000 acres in California and moved to Hampton Roads… Just kidding! Aside from being hilarious, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast, and just recently moved my family to Virginia Beach. Originally, I am from Oklahoma where my professional background is in Project and General Management. I am a diehard OU Sooners fan and am always up for a cold glass of mead. I look forward to working with you!
