I am the owner of The Alternative Board Detroit Metro North. Our corporate office is in Rochester Hills, Michigan. We bring business owners together—similar to a board of directors—and work together to deal with challenges and opportunities we each face in our own businesses. My commitment is to achieve tangible and measurable results designed to increase profitability and life/work balance. I have 30 years of private business ownership experience, across numerous industries including corporate service, specializing in leadership and new business development.
We are proud to offer expertise in operations, recruiting, exit planning, sales/service training and family dynamics in business ownership. Most recently, I was a multi-location business owner and currently own R7 Professional Laundry Services. I attended Indiana University, Bloomington Indiana, and Washburn Trade, Chicago, Illinois.
