It was a privilege for us to spend a little time on location at Local Works with Jamee Haley. We think you’ll see, as we did, that Jamee is as passionate as she is smart. As Co-Founder of Lowcountry Local First, she lives her life as a strong advocate for local independent businesses and farmers. Since starting LLF, she has a list of accolades including being named one of nine local economy cohorts in North America with Balle, one of the 50 Most Progressive Women by Charlie Magazine, one of Charleston Business Journal’s Most Influential Women in Business in 2014, one of Charleston Magazine’s forty individuals who helped shape the city of Charleston since 1975, and most recently, she has been appointed as the Charleston County Ambassador of Economic Development by SC Department of Commerce. Clearly, Jamee’s impact in Charleston and beyond is profound as she works every day to help local business owners succeed and thrive through multiple initiatives, including Local Works, a collaborative workspace for entrepreneurs to co-create and harness the energy and support of other local businesses. Thanks for listening as we explore Jamee’s history that got her to where she is now, and hear more about how we can be more aware of all the local businesses around us.
