Our conversation for The Valley Business Today featured Patrick Barker, Executive Director of the Frederick County EDA and Jenna French, Director of Economic Development & Tourism for Shenandoah County to talk about Live Love Shenandoah.
The program focuses on empowering employers/employees and raising awareness for both locals and those looking to relocate to the area for jobs. Information about the region's workforce, recreation, and commuting calculators can be found on the website: LiveLoveShenandoah.com.
Patrick & Jenna explained why the program is needed and how the data collection was done. We talked about the multi-pronged approach of educating local kids in middle/high schools about the job opportunities in the region as well as attracting those from outside the area to relocate to the Shenandoah Valley.
