The GO LOCAL Team
Janeen Murray, Director
Janeen Murray is the Director of Sonoma County GO LOCAL, a marketing network of more than 400 Sonoma County businesses, non-profits, and government agencies. GO LOCAL provides economic development marketing to help increase awareness about the importance of going local, to drive more market share to locally owned businesses and strengthen our local economy.
Janeen started out as a science teacher in Sonoma County public schools, inspiring a commitment to learning and sustainability in our youth. She then shifted over to experience the private sector, managing operations and marketing for locally owned businesses.
Now supporting the GO LOCAL community since 2010, Janeen has served as Director for the past 4 years. In parallel, she manages Sustaining Technologies, LLC, a worker-owned and cooperatively-managed LLC that provides the media publishing and management for GO LOCAL.
