Certified Woman-Owned Small Business
J. Leapaldt & Associates is proud to be a certified woman-owned small business (WOSB) through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The rigorous process and subsequent certification ensures clients and vendors that our company follows best practices for a small business. The prestige of the WOSB certification also creates more opportunities for us to negotiate agreements with a growing number of commercial furniture manufacturers, exposing you to a greater diversity of price points and selection of products. This flexibility and depth of resources is a powerful benefit to working with us.
As a WOSB, J. Leapaldt & Associates has received additional certification through the Central Certification Program (CERT). This designation recognizes our small business excellence and allows us to bid on government contracts in Hennepin and Ramsey Counties, and the City of St. Paul. We enjoy access to other CERT business owners and to CERTS’s educational programs. Each day provides us an opportunity to sharpen our skill set and concentrate on performance excellence for our clients.
Relationships are important to Julie, in her company and community.

Whether working to make your furniture project a success, or contributing as a Rotarian, Apollo H.S. dance line booster, or member of the board for Anna Marie’s Alliance Julie commits and gives her all to the experience.
The health, happiness, and well-being of her clients and community are also important to Julie. She’s compelled to get involved, to do whatever she can to improve people’s quality-of-life.
