How Can I Help You?

I have over 20 years of experience in keeping my finger on the pulse of the unique challenges my business clients face in an ever-changing environment.  My goal is to simplify their day-to-day operations to allow them to achieve their business goals through our dedicated banking solutions.  I take the time to listen, understand and then provide trusted expert advice around commercial lending, real estate loans/construction financing, SBA financing or working capital lines of credit.  I have clients throughout Connecticut and my expertise reaches various industries from real estate developers, to medical, to the first indoor pickleball court in Central Connecticut. By working closely with my business partners here at Chelsea Groton Bank, I am able to deliver the full suite of banking solutions and technology, but most importantly the dedicated customer service your company deserves each day.
