Although Becky has provided consultancy to many types of businesses over a broad number of industries, she is currently focusing her attention within the Manufactured/Mobile Home Industry.

She is available to provide expert assistance to our clients in business operations and financials as well as project financing. In general, her clients enjoy lower rates, better terms, and most of all, less frustration while transacting with the financial industry.

“Helping an investment property owner improve financials, business operations, or achieve a competitive and healthy posture within the industry is rewarding to me. Reliable advice and service to business owners is what I will always be doing at any point in my financial career.”
