About
As a business owner and an entrepreneur, I am passionately aware of the challenges and needs that my clients face on a daily basis. This year I assisted Pro Projects of Texas, LLC, Ascenter Holding, LLC, Forte Health, LLC, Angel Congregate, Inc., and RCH Holdings, LLC, structure and launch as new startup businesses, designing and implementing the structures that will see them through several years of growth.

I started my first business in the early 1980's and continue to operate businesses today. I am eager to share my experience and insight with you.
