“I was in business for 3 years and had no luck finding a bank that would consider a significant line of credit for my business. Most said they would consider a line of 50% of Accounts Receivable, but because I received payment in 30 days on average I didn’t have a significant AR backlog. When I met Arlene she assessed my situation and said she was confident she could find a lender who would work with me. We began our engagement in early April and I closed on my Line of Credit before the end of May. I now have the resources I need to pursue an aggressive growth plan. If you’re like me, in need of financing and not sure where to begin or how to tell your story in a way that lenders will pay attention to, I highly recommend working with Arlene. She knows what she is doing, will give you great advice, will ensure you know all of your options and will give you the guidance you need to secure your financing.”

I am proud to announce that I have decided to leave the world of “Traditional Banking employment” to become “self-employed.” As an entrepreneur, I feel I can better serve you and your financial needs by working with you to select the best solutions for your business.
My 30 years of experience in the banking world and my involvement in Not-for-profit organizations provides a wide breadth of experience and exposure to options that allow me to tailor programs for my clients.
As I work through the legal and contractual issues entrepreneurs face as a start-up, I am be able to relate to the challenges and understand more acutely your concerns. I am committed to establishing a business focused on integrity, innovation, empowerment, and quality to drive for your success.
Thank you for the warm welcome I have received as I start this new journey.
