With over 30 years of corporate, non-profit and franchise expertise, my goal is to connect aspiring business owners with franchise opportunities worldwide.
My first experience in franchise consulting occurred back in 2002 advising my husband. Like many of us, he did not want to continue to work for an employer and preferred to be the master of his own destiny. In 2003, after following a methodical process together, he decided upon and validated a UPS Store franchise. A 2nd store was acquired in 2006 and since then both franchises have renewed after owning them for 10 + years respectively.
For over 25 years, I worked in medical device and automotive corporate environments in a global sales and marketing capacity. Being fluent in French and German as well as having a capacity in Spanish and Arabic has facilitated business ventures worldwide and made my profession a lot more interesting and challenging.
Today I combine my experience and interests to assist those wanting to buy a franchise business either as an owner operator or a semi-absentee owner. (Even McDonald's makes their new franchisees work in the business for a year.) We also specialize in working with those who want to invest in the U.S. through the EB5 or E2 visa programs.
On a personal note, in 2010, I helped an unincorporated area of San Diego County revive a non-profit organization in order to create a partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of North County to house a temporary skate park. Our destination skate spot intends to open in early 2018 at a local sports park!
To any new business connection, I bring empathy, curiosity, persistence, tenacity and problem-solving ability. Take control of your future. Let me assist and guide you in finding the perfect business franchise – your key to turning private ownership dreams into business reality.
