How I can help you

I can help you to launch and grow your home-based business and with sales, marketing, customer service, and training. I am fluent in ASL American Sign Language and have experience working with the deaf community and its culture. Two of my three children are deaf. As an entrepreneur, I have started and operated three home-based businesses. The first business is a company focused on selling and distributing scientific research equipment for the study of brain function, nerve communication, and neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis. This equipment is sold to universities, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies. I work with both domestic and international customers and manufacturers. The second business is a jewelry business based on American Sign Language and I design, manufacture, market, sell, and manage all day-to-day operations. I recently obtained my Real Estate License and work with HUNT/ERA in Rochester, specializing in working with the deaf community. Im a member of the Rochester Artisans, the Small Business Alliance and Greater Rochester Association of Realtors and Educational Support Service Personnel that offers support and services for deaf and hard of hearing students in education. Give me a call as I am passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge.
