About Us 

Gina and Katina have “real world” experience in leading and advising companies. We have served at both Executive and C-Suite Levels as owners and key employees. We understand the challenges of making cash last and the value of investment and debt financing when you need to scale quickly because we have lived it. As a CEO/Owner, Katina has led the growth of her family’s business that resulted in doubling sales and a very successful sale to a strategic acquirer. Gina was the operations leader as a company grew its revenue by 9x.

We both have a “hands on” approach to working with our clients and have advised and consulted with companies from startup to over $100M in revenue.

We also are both actively serving as Board Members on Non-Profit and For-Profit organizations.
