After many years in the gas and electric and telecommunications industries, Loree Byzick joined SCED for a two-year special project which evolved into a 15-year tutorial on the unique community and economic development challenges of rural communities.
Loree led efforts to develop microenterprise development programs in three of SCED’s four counties and still serves as SCED’s small business resource. Her current focus is on coordinating special projects, assisting with economic development planning activities, administering grants and contracts and providing ancillary support for SCED’s business development loan programs.
Loree has a BA in Business Administration, is a NxLeveL Entrepreneurial Training Network Certified Instructor and holds a California Community College Teaching Credential in Business and Industrial Management. Her most important accomplishment is raising two children who continue to excel in their careers and are now raising families of their own!
Working in her, “much too big” yard and short weekend getaways with family and friends refresh her mind and spirt.
