*Open* small business directory during Covid-19 // Q&As with Locals in Healdsburg, CA
In the time of Covid-19, I launched this site to help support small businesses in the best way I already knew how:
continue to shop and order from them,
organize helpful information,
and share stories about locals, businesses and organizations that keep this community connected.
I grew up with immigrant parents that owned a neighborhood grocery store and take-away restaurant for 10 years, in a small touristy town in Cairns, Australia, near the Great Barrier Reef.
Fast forward to 2007, and another small town across the globe, Healdsburg, CA -- immediately charmed me and my husband Kevin, when we first visited, that was sparked by a Hotel Healdsburg gift certificate given to us for our wedding.
We're lucky to call Healdsburg our home.
I'm grateful to be partnered with the Healdsburg Tribune.
Thank you to my friends at @lovehealdsburg who inspired me to do more to support small businesses.
Stay safe and be well 🖤
