Annette is originally from California and moved to Columbus in 2018, and currently sits on the Events, Education and Marketing Committee for the Chamber. She is the Director of a non-profit called Alianza 614 and is the owner and founder of El Mercadito - a collection of Latine/ Hispanic artists and small businesses. Through the Mercadito, Annette hopes to support small businesses in my community by offering affordable fees, assisting in taking their business to the next level, bringing light to our culture, and making people feel at home and like family. She is also the owner of FLOWER day-ze, aspiring to help people express their special message into a beautiful bouquet when words cannot.
Annette’s vision is to create a company that not only strives to provide excellent customer service but also provides hope to the community. Using dedication, perseverance, and hard work, anything is possible. She utilizes the skills she has learned over the years, both professionally and personally, to fabricate her business to support the people in the communities around her.
