My name is Dr. Amanda DiGiovanni; I am the CEO and founder of Rehabtree Staffing LLC, located in Marlton, NJ.  I have been in business for 6 1/2 years and even with the education I received through my Doctorate in Occupational Therapy in Administration and Practice Management. I needed guidance and support so I turned to Gary Rago at the SBDC he provided me with the guidance I needed and introduced me to Stephanie Burroughs who has guided me every step of the way through the SAM/ DUNS process and has assisted me in obtaining the NJ WBE certification. I am scheduled to have a call with her to discuss how to utilize the government website and compete for these contracts; she’s the only SBDC consultant  who knows this process and the only one who can educate small business owners in NJ how to go about this certification.  I would never be able to navigate through this process without her guidance.
