I serve local for-profits and nonprofits through formation, growth, and exit strategies. I empower both for-profit and nonprofit founders to establish their new venture correctly from day one. Working with a business from the start builds a solid foundation from the first day they open their doors.
Once established, I continue to partner with clients throughout their growth by assisting with compliance issues, hiring, partnership agreements, customer and vendor agreements, and fundraising. I ensure my clients can accomplish their goals while protecting their hard work.
