Benefits Administration

Hi, my name is CJ Gueldner and I have lived in Nevada for the last 30 years.  I love to work with the rural Nevada areas, but working in the big cities of Reno and Carson City are awesome too!  As a former real estate agent, I am fully aware of the marketing concepts that play in when you are thinking about launching a new start-up business or even expanding your existing business.  Every business’ needs are different.  Give me a chance to help you help your company grow with Rise.

Let’s start from the beginning….the paperwork.  I’ll do my best to help you get all your documents together so that we can work together to get you the best plan for your start-up or expansion.  Getting everything together is half the battle.

After that, everything flows smoothly.  I’ll be there with you through every step of the process.
