Asisat joined the Business Center for New Americans in 2015. She immigrated to the United States in 1995 with her father, sharing the same dream as many of BCNA's clients – "to build a better life for herself and her family." As an immigrant, she understands the vital mission of BCNA and is excited to be part of the team. Asisat is fascinated by the constant development of technology to make financial and office management more seamless and dynamic. She is taking a leadership role in moving BCNA towards a paperless operation by using innovative technology.
