Role at FastLane

As a brand representative, I work with referral partners and their candidates as the candidate advances through the brand's franchise discovery process. I educate and guide the prospective franchisee as they explore business ownership through franchising to realize their professional, financial and lifestyle goals as an entrepreneur.

What do you love most about FRANCHISING?

New franchisees have an instant "family" and "team" when they find the right franchise fit. They are in business or themselves, but not by themselves, as they receiving training and have ongoing support. The path to profitability is much shorter when following a system, hence, the investment is somewhat de-risked, making it more attractive and feasible for first time business owners.

My Lucy (the lifesaver) is my companion, comic, protector, entertainment, snuggle buddy, workout partner, and biggest fan. She's a 6 1/2 year old Vizsla who loves to listen to me play piano, guitar, and sing. We found each other when she was 2 1/2, and it was unclear who needed whom more at that time.



I enjoy golf, music, and pilates!
