Center Director/Business Advisor
Ms. Emily Sam O’Steen joined the Kosrae SBDC as the new Business Advisor on the first week of October 2016. M. O’steen worked for the Kosrae government as a student intern with the FSM Finance for three months and joined the Division of Statistics as a Census Enumerator for eight months. She also worked at the Department of Education, Kosrae State as a classroom teacher for five years.
Ms. O’Steen left Kosrae to join her husband who was recruited for the US Armed Forces in 2008. She was hired by the AAFES Exchange in Fort Hood, Texas as a sales clerk. After her husband’s medical retirement with the US Military around June 2013, Ms. O’Steen came back with her family to Kosrae where she started working for the Kosrae State Government.
On October 2016, Ms. O’Steen was hired by the Kosrae SBDC as the new Business Advisor.
With the knowledge and skills that Ms. O’Steen brought with her to the Kosrae SBDC, we are fortunate to have such an asset to help the Kosrae small business community.
