EASTHAMPTON — The Women Business Owners Alliance of the Pioneer Valley Inc. (WBOA) will recognize Anita Eliason and Jennifer Roberge as co-recipients of the organization’s 2018 Business Woman of the Year award, given annually to a member who has contributed to WBOA in a significant way, is a role model, and inspires other women to be successful.
Eliason and Roberge are the owners of Zesta Style, providing personal styling, style coaching, alterations, and color consulting to help women “unlock confidence with style.” Both women have been WBOA members since 2012.
“We are so thrilled to honor Anita and Jen this year,” said WBOA President Gretchen Duhaime. “Their contributions to WBOA have been monumental. And their business partnership shows that, together, we can do so much more than when we try to go it alone.”
