Why do you do what you do?

I enjoy helping clients in our class “Preparing for the CCB Exam”, succeed in passing their exams so that they can apply for their Construction Contractors Board (CCB) license. Many of our students have tried many times to pass this exam, and the class has made a big difference in their lives.


I have been working for the Clackamas SBDC for more than 12 years. I was originally introduced to the SBDC when I had started a business with my friend. While starting the business I was hired as a part-time employee and from there I continued to work full time at the SBDC. I am no longer in business but found that working at the SBDC gave me a lot of satisfaction in helping other businesses succeed.
