Also, Dorina worked at Florida SBDC at USF as Business Consultant. She educated many entrepreneurs in every stage of their business and helped them start and/or grow their business venture(s). She assisted many business owners to complete banking packages so they could apply for capital with the lender.

This experience opened her eyes to SBA lending and in 2019 she joined First Home Bank SBA CreditBench team as SBA Underwriter. In this role she learned many valuable lessons about prudent lending and tremendous benefits of SBA 7(a) loan program.  In July 2021 she joined Valley because of a positive workplace culture and the ability to connect locally with Tampa Bay clients to make an impact on her local community.
