Outreach Mgr
US Department Of Treasury

As an Outreach Manager for the State Small Business Credit Initiative, I have led inter-agency discussions to enhance the entrepreneurial ecosystem with a focus on rural, small, minority-owned and women-owned businesses.

Successes include:
Cultivating strong, collaborative relationships with state awardees in order to help develop and implement strategies to improve program effectiveness;
Developing the first ever Treasury supported state peer-to-peer strategy to assist state agencies' ability to enhance capacity and deploy federal funds;
Maintaining and strengthening existing strategic partnerships to foster deeper engagement and build new relationships with governmental agencies;
Further enhancing technical assistance and communicating outreach plans to federal and state funded agencies.
