2021 & beyond

2021

The Freckled Strawberry was born. 

2020

I was transformed. The story? It would take a fireside chat to talk about the magic. The pivot? The end of an abusive relationship, a launch of an advanced career with new credentials, a heightened understanding of commitment and perseverance as a mom, and a calling. I am standing alone in this picture for a reason. Be your own Heroine. 

2013

This handsome kiddo was born. Patrick is the light in my life, and now my best friend. I was a single Mom for many, many years. Having a career, earning a living and taking care of my son was hard. But, I believe those struggles pay dividends in experience.

Our Journey So Far

THE TIMELINE

Learn More

Growing up in a small agricultural farm town in the Midwest provided rich American tradition, values steeped in our amendment rights and free enterprise for all Americans willing to work hard. Love of country and those who serve are held in high regard and reverence. In fact, six of our extended family members served in the US Military; my grandfather William Coleman receiving a Purple Heart Medal.

Ambition and pulling up one’s bootstraps inspired early participation in our family business. At 5 years old, I rolled up my sleeves and went to work with my Dad. Raised to be independent, it was clear that I would direct my concentration to finance and pursue my dreams. After a life-long love affair with New York City, at 22 years old, I relocated to the Northeast. NYC!

To this day, I remain Dad’s confidant. His Consigliere. His silent partner. Entrepreneurism, capitalism and lessons of self-reliance remain commonplace in our household. These values, instilled at a young age, have shaped the individual I am today.

Throughout my tenured career in financial services, I continue to support business enterprise; be it business loans, venture capital, investment management, financial planning or angel investing, I have a passion for free enterprise.
