Business Broker, Business Coach and Founding Partner of Colorado Business Brokers

I bring over 20 combined years of experience as both a co-owner in three family-owned businesses and as an international sales and marketing specialist. I am a skilled financial analyst and marketer, a savvy sales & operations professional and a seasoned negotiator.

My family-owned businesses are primarily in real-estate and family entertainment and are focused on historic restoration and community development. I believe in the values of connectivity and continuity of community and now work to defend the vision and purpose of other Colorado small business owners.

I spent 17 years developing international markets for Colorado's home-grown brands, Celestial Seasonings and Gaiam, served as an assistant to the state's Asia Trade Specialist at the Colorado International Trade Office, and have lived overseas for a total of nine years. My perspective has been sharpened by my experiences dealing with businesses, people and cultures all around the world, and that global outlook has transformed into refined local insight.

I have a BS in Marketing from Arizona State University and an Executive MBA from the University of Denver. I am a Colorado native and currently live in Louisville with my husband and two children.
