Beyond 18, College Consulting
Marie Morris, independent education consultant and founder of Beyond 18,LLC, believes there are many choices post high school, some not readily apparent. Finding the "right" college is all about fit: academically, socially and financially. And that looks different for every student.
When not helping students, touring colleges or attending conferences and webinars to stay up to date on college trends, Marie can be found on the golf course, out kayaking, snow skiing in winter, or in her garden at home where she is trying to figure out what to do with a bumper crop of tomatillos.
Marie Morris has served as RHBA chair from 2016. She enjoys getting to know and supporting the small businesses in our community. She is proud to be a part of an organization that loves to give back to the community through the annual Shred Event, Backpack program and Shop with a Cop.

Content Management Social Media
With over 20 years of website and marketing experience, my goal is to make website technology and integrated marketing a positive asset for the small business at an affordable price. By using the 7 principles of GPS Marketing we can make your website a tool rather than a static billboard or an expense item. Every business needs a website today. The real question is: Should you be working for your website or should it be working for you?
Michael is responsible for technical development of the RHBA website and the Social media postings as well as the RHBA update. The monthly email that lets us all know what is going on and when, usually originates with him but depends on the input from other board members and the membership at large.
