I bring a diversified background to the area of Fiduciary Services. The assistance I provide for my elderly mother has enlightened me to the need so many of our seniors have. Not only do I bring empathy and understanding to my clients, I bring a sound business, family oriented and a financially sound perspective.
I moved to the San Francisco bay area in 1980, raised a family, and enjoy the lifestyle, multi-cultural atmosphere and free spirited thinking that makes it a great place to live. My daughter is an experienced emergency room registered nurse and is now an Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. My daughter in law is also a registered nurse at Stanford Medical Center . Both have made me more aware and understanding of our health care system, especially in senior needs.
I have operated successful businesses as well as assisted in the sale and transfer of ownership of other bay area businesses. In particular, I owned a successful wholesale supply business on the peninisula for 20 years, sold it, and transitioned my skills to business brokerage. Since 2006, I have been volunteering with SCORE at the San Francisco office of the Small Business Administration, mentoring future and present business owners.
I believe my interest in working and helping people comes from my early career in the hospitality business where I held executive and managerial positions in the hotel business. My alma mater is the world recognized Hospitality School at Florida International University and the State University of New York - Delhi campus.
