I enjoy being part of the SBDC team because:
"I have always enjoyed helping people. The SBDC’s team members are all caring people who share my passion. The SBDC is family to me and I love the impact it has made throughout the years in helping businesses to succeed. We have grown into one of the top SBDCs in the state."
My favorite activity living in the Rogue Valley is:
“The small home town atmosphere and country living.”
