CLEARFIELD -- When setting up her own company nine years ago, growing into a business with nearly 200 employees and 2011 revenue of $18.9 million was not what Karen Woodbury set out to do.
However, now that her company, Woodbury Technologies, has become just that, she has been recognized as the Utah State Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
"I didn't have any grandiose ideas or big plans. What I had in mind was on a smaller scale," said Woodbury, 55, CEO of the company. "I don't know what happened, but I do have an ambitious streak. I just kept working hard trying to get new business, and ... it grew incrementally."
