Presenter: Audrey Powers, BB&T
Presenter Bio: I have worked in the financial industry for 35 years and with BB&T for 26. Current position is Small Business Specialist Team Leader for the Valley Region assisting a variety of small business clients including farmers with financial needs. I have a BS degree in Business Administration with a major in accounting. The bank also keeps us well educated in financial analysis, regulations, and products and services that fit specific small business client’s needs. I grew up on a small farm where we raised hogs, chickens, milked cows, and grew vegetables for consumption; and tobacco as a cash crop. Gardening and spending time with my family, especially grandchildren, are my greatest joy. I love the outdoors.
