Truth be told, I always prefer a meeting in person over a cup of coffee but if you want to learn more about me before connecting than keep on reading.
Starting with 16 years of community banking background, I worked in various retail roles before moving into management. During this strange time of developing a sales role within banking, I was introduced to merchant processing, which quickly evolved into my passion project. I felt so motivated by its complex challenges, it’s frequent evolution and relished the opportunity to provide value and create meaningful, long-lasting relationships with my clients.
After 17 years in the payments industry as a consistent top performer, I learned staying laser focused on helping my merchants not only brings me great joy but gives my life more purpose. I‘ve led individuals, teams and divisions in this industry but have grown to realize that the lack of personal contact with business owners and clients for me was dreadfully unsatisfying. I’m a Leo after all, so, heart on my sleeve I stepped back into a personal contributor role as Business Advocate/ Payments Professional which has always given me the chance to really connect, help people, build deeper relationships and keep me smiling.
I am a 1099 self employed business and am permitted to use multiple networks to board my merchants . The advantage simply allows me to pivot based on the needs of the merchant and find solutions right for them rather than steering them into a solution I’m restricted to offering. Payments is not SQUARE people… it’s dynamic and changing and evolving and sometimes it’s awful right?
I’m always on the road able to support business owners where they are. Teaching and making the experience less painful in the process.
When I’m not actually working for my clients, I enjoy a very busy, fun-filled family life. We LIVE to travel! My partner and I along with our two kids Lexi 19, Grady 28 are all certified divers and avid skiers or what I like to call it “surf and turf.” Over the last few years I’ve recently taken up golf and am addicted!
