I support existing and prospective foreign-owned business customers by helping identify competitive advantages when expanding or locating their business in our service territory.
I bring nearly a decade of experience in international trade development at the state level from both Michigan and Ohio. I previously served as the director of international trade for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). Before that, I was a fellow and legislative aide in the Ohio House of Representatives where I served as clerk of the Public Utilities Committee.
I am a certified global business professional (CGBP) accredited by the National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators (NASBITE). I earned my Juris Doctor degree from Capital University Law School, and my bachelor’s degrees in international business and Spanish/international relations from the Ohio State University.
