Growing our Team

The Delaware SBDC staff is excited to welcome two University of Delaware students to our new offices in Newark, Delaware on the STAR Campus. Interns Imani Gibbs and Jayla Russell bring new skill sets to the organization, which has been offering businesses low-to-no-cost support for nearly 40 years. It’s been a productive year for the Small Business Development Center, and we are especially excited to build our capacity to serve Delaware’s small business community. Read on to learn more about each of our interns!

Meet the Interns:

Imani Gibbs, a senior pursuing a BA in Communications, looks forward to creating creative content and hopes to highlight opportunities in small business development. Being a first-generation college student, she values connecting and supporting others on their own journey of firsts.

Jayla Russell is majoring in Management Information Systems and is looking forward to applying her business and technology skills to the real world. Jayla has a deep knowledge of WordPress at a functional and technical level and has had lots of experience growing her social media and connecting with others.
