“The SBDC has been our go to resource for accurate information and connection to the regional small business machinery.  From navigating the initial rollout of the PPP to pivoting to a new business model, the SBDC has been central to our ability to successfully navigate the complex realities of running a business during a pandemic.”

"The SBDC and Jaime have been instrumental in keeping me afloat financially during the COVID pandemic. Their classes taught me what I needed to know right when I needed to know it, and Jaime went out of her way to let me know when certain funds were available, urging me to apply before the deadlines were up. I wish every struggling entrepreneur took advantage of the free services they have to offer. They are truly amazing!"
