Loan Officer
Even before underwriting begins, Briana assures that both the potential borrower and lender are on the same page, that the Small Business Administration 504 loan program is the right fit, and articulates every step of the loan approval process. Briana is eloquent with her words and participates in countless lender panels and trainings throughout the year to help educate our partners and small business owners.
It’s hard to say how many countries Briana’s visited since joining our staff in 2012 (seriously no one can keep up), but with travel as her passion, she never fails to think outside the box and pushes herself outside her comfort zone on a daily basis.
