I am a local economic developer. I provide extensive outreach to enhance the relationship between the Town of West Hartford and local businesses. I am responsible for business retention and expansion, new business attraction, and small business and entrepreneurial support. I work with our business community to provide ongoing support, assistance and resources necessary for each entrepreneur to be as successful as possible, including liaising between businesses and DECD, CTSBDC, and more.

I work to make opening a business easier by helping find available space, helping get access to capital, shepherding businesses through the approval process and being a constant point of contact for assistance. During 2019, more than 100 businesses opened or expanded in West Hartford. I also serve on the BOD for the CT Economic Development Association (CEDAS), this organization advocates for business support and development, and advancing the practice of economic development in CT.
