Bio
Ana Abraham was frustrated by the lack of information available online about the new community she and husband Steve had moved to. So, using her years of experience developing online software and marketing strategies for national brands like 1800flowers.com, she and Steve started NewTampaDirectory.com. In 2007, the Abrahams began franchising the concept under the name Mini Cities. Each Mini Cities community website is named for the community it serves and offers a directory of local businesses, events and coupons.
