We are HUNGRY to grow the Great Falls Montana regional economy, create higher wage jobs, build our tax base, improve our market competitiveness, and enhance the quality of life and economic opportunity! I am a business concierge. We work with businesses in our market to expand and thrive; businesses out of market to locate here; and entrepreneurs chasing dreams. We link business people to financial resources, advocate for their success, consult on best practices in all aspects of business, and build our region. I love what I do! I am proud to say I recently became a Certified Economic Developer (CEcD). This is the gold standard in economic development. Someone with their CEcD is proven to meet core competencies in our profession. I've heard it described as the CPA and MBA in the Economic Development field and after having gone through the process, I agree. Now I am working on becoming a Economic Development Finance Professional, EDFP, through National Development Council so that I have more tools to make deals happen!
