Role at FastLane

My main role is to assist candidates in exploring franchising as a viable option to achieve their personal and professional goals. I have the privilege of partnering with brands to present fantastic opportunities to potential franchisees, spending my days getting to know people, educating them, and guiding them in finding the right fit within the franchise organizations.

What do you love most about FRANCHISING?

I find immense joy in the growth potential that franchising offers, with the franchisor's support in providing tools, guidance, and powerful branding. Helping entrepreneurs discover their dream business and attain the desired work-life balance is deeply fulfilling to me, and I believe that franchising can be a pathway to generational prosperity for those who take that initial step. Being able to assist people in making major life decisions and ultimately improving their circumstances is truly rewarding.

My fiance, Amber, and I have been together for nearly 8 years, but have been close friends since nearly high school. Where I've been in the business consultant world for nearly a decade, on and off in business for myself, Amber also has nearly 2 decades of experience as a professional makeup artist, running her own business in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are an inseparable team of driven entrepreneurs with unwavering love and support for one another, truly living my dream. We are also overly dedicated plant parents, 120 house plants and growing!
