Estella Woodley

How do your colleagues describe you?

Estella is invaluable to have in my corner. Her way of processing information gives her a unique ability to address tough situations in clear and concise ways.

Why do you do what you do?

I love being able to help people reach their dreams and give them the tools and encouragement needed to be successful. Being an owner is difficult, but with the right people in your corner, great achievements are possible. As a bilingual former small business owner, as well as a corporate HR professional, my well-rounded knowledge brings important perspectives to the community we serve, allowing for their further success.
