About Me:

Passionate about entrepreneurship, Asbury has provided no and low-cost technical assistance to hundreds of small businesses through several federally funded national programs including the SBDC, the Women’s Business Center, and the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership.  He founded and ran a process improvement training and executive coaching business for five years.  Earlier in his career, he worked with manufacturing companies where he focused on employee-driven manufacturing process improvements. Later, he successfully applied these same improvement techniques to administrative processes and government operations to achieve similar results.

A lifelong learner and product of the public schools of Southcentral Los Angeles, Asbury has an undergraduate degree in Engineering and graduate degrees in both Business (MBA) and Law (JD).
