Estevan businesses have been thrown for a loop over the past years, and luckily they've had a steady hand there to help guide them.

Jackie Wall, Executive Director for the Estevan Chamber of Commerce, has been working with those businesses for a decade.

She's been through both the oil downturn of the last decade and the COVID pandemic, so she's seen Estevan pull through the worst of it.

Her service was recognized with the Executive of the Year award for chambers with under 500 members from the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada.

We sat down with her to talk about some of the experiences she's gone through working with Estevan's businesses.
