I’m originally from a much larger city, and honestly, I didn’t know what to think when I learned we would move to St. Joseph for work. I was surprised at how welcoming the people are and how everything you need is close by. It’s not perfect, like no city is, but there’s something truly unique about St. Joseph. I think it’s that it offers so many amenities without losing its ‘small town’ charm. It was one of the best moves we ever made.Susan Campbell, founder, SJC Marketing
