Small Business Roundtable
(3rd Wednesday of the Month)
Every business has had to start at the bottom at some point and we all know that the climb to the top is not an easy one. Small Business Roundtable is a forum where small business can gather to discuss marketing issues, share solutions, and develop new ideas to help them succeed.

A life-long learner, she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Science, with an emphasis in ecology and sociology, and is currently working towards her MBA.
