With over 20 years of experience in the banking and finance industry, primarily working with businesses, Monica Coburn saw a need and a gap that needed to be filled. As a result, Nevada Business Advisors was formed. Her experience working with business owners, CFO’s, Controllers, etc. in various stages of the company from start up to growth, led to this point.
Monica has received numerous awards throughout her career, including awards from the U.S. Small Business Administration, a recipient of the Woman of Distinction Award by the National Association of Women Business Owners Southern Nevada and received an award from the Urban Chamber of Commerce for Women In Politics and Community Service. Monica has participated as a speaker and panelist speaking on access to capital and business financing for various business workshops and serves as a mentor for the Emerging Leaders Program, administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Monica started her entrepreneurship training at the young age of 8 selling Christmas and holiday cards door to door in her neighborhood, and selling items to kids in the neighborhood through her makeshift pop up store. Her passion for business has grown through the years and at the age of 25 started her own business, The Personal Shopper, as a part time venture. It was through this business venture, a hard lesson was learned. From this experience, her passion and determination in helping businesses be educated became a priority.
Monica’s passion is helping businesses succeed and helping the youth in our community who need it most. Her community involvement includes her volunteer efforts with a number of charitable organizations including Salvation Army, Goodie Two Shoes, New Vista, Project 150, and Three Square. She also serves on the Board of Directors for several organizations, including Nevada Business Opportunity Fund, B.E.A.S.H.E.R.O. Foundation, Global Charity Foundation and is a member of the Business Development Advisory Council for Clark County. Previously, she served on the board of Directors for Dress for Success Southern Nevada and was the founding chair for their annual signature event.
