Desiree Haschke Back at Evergreen Business Capital as Senior Loan Officer
Evergreen Business Capital is pleased to announce the return of Desiree Haschke as Vice President and Senior Loan Officer. Desiree spent nearly 12 years with our team before joining Fortune Bank as an SBA Relationship Officer, and then moving with her family to Naples, Italy. It was there that she found a passion for photography.
After returning to the United States, Desiree and her family settled in Virginia Beach where she became a small business owner of a photography studio specializing in newborn, child, and family portraits. Her passion for children and social services led her to become a mentor and camp counselor for the Rise n’ Shine Foundation for over six years. With her return to Evergreen, and the experience of being a small business owner, she has a renewed focus on helping entrepreneurs jump start their business endeavors.
