Katy Lesser recognized for winning the SBA 2010 Vermont Small Business Person of the Year Awards

Visionary. Savvy. Brave. Hard worker. Leader. Beautiful. Badass. These are just a few words Nina and Eli Lesser-Goldsmith used to describe their mother and owner of Healthy Living, Katy Lesser. She was recognized as this year’s recipient of the Small Business Administration (SBA)’s 2010 Vermont Small Business Person of the Year Award last night at Shelburne Farms.

Katy was selected for her outstanding leadership related to her company’s staying power, employee growth, increase in sales, innovative ingenuity and contributions to the community.

Governor Jim Douglas presents Katy with her award. Katy offered Douglas a job bagging groceries once his gubernatorial days are over, so be on the lookout for him!

Our entire Healthy Living staff joined us at the Coach Barn afterward to help us celebrate Katy’s achievement. We’ll have more pictures and videos coming next week of the event, so stay tuned!
