Managing Director, Southeast Region
Janet once had a boss tell her that “howdy” calls were not his thing, but she has since learned and firmly believes in the importance of reaching out, checking in and building relationships. Janet’s philosophy, and one that she instills in the clients she coaches, is that strong business relationships are the key to new and, most importantly, repeat business.
Prior to joining BDU, Janet has had a solid history of achievement in both financial sales and entrepreneurship.
She is proud to have been a founding staff member and contributor to Bayview Asset Management, LLC in Coral Gables, FL for over 20 years. There she developed her love for both sales and helping institutions meet their financial goals. Her responsibilities included building new client relationships, soliciting financial institutions and generating revenue, as well as training secondary sales executives.
It was during her time at Bayview that Janet was first introduced to Lisa Peskin and BDU. The sales training she received and the strategies she learned from Lisa have remained with her, and she is so excited to now become a part of the BDU team.
Janet left the sales world for a stint in entrepreneurship as an owner/operator of the only Plato’s Closet location in Miami. As a small business owner, she was able to learn and appreciate all aspects of running a business, including training, marketing, selling and negotiating.
Janet currently resides in Miami, FL and is married with four children.
