Jasmine Lillich

How do your colleagues describe you?

“A strong leader.”

“Her energy is contagious!”

“She cares deeply for her community.”

“Jasmine gives it her all and you can tell she loves what she does.”

Why do you do what you do?

I believe small businesses are the backbone of a vibrant and resilient community. Owning a small business that fulfills a community need is the most empowering and rewarding part of my life. I envision a strong diverse web of small businesses in Columbia County, working for the benefit of future generations. I’m here to help bring that vision to fruition!
