You should contact an attorney and have your attorney send the business owner a cease and desist letter right away.  She does not have the right or authority to use your likeness.  If you can show that her use of your likeness in association with this business has affected you negatively in any way, you can then pursue her for the damage this has caused you.  Good luck to you.
