What do I like best about working for the Chamber:  I love meeting people and connecting with the community that I live in. At the Chamber, I am exposed to such a variety of people: businessmen and women, community leaders, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, new residents, and concerned citizens. What a wonderful opportunity to connect to and learn from this great community.                                                                                                       Favorite quotes:

What do I like best about working for the Chamber: Planting a seed of education, advocacy, and leadership in the local community equates to a valuable opportunity to interact with people of all walks of life. The community leaders, teachers, and business-minded- servant hearts challenge and innovate our local community through women empowerment, economic development, and civic engagement. I get to meet and work with those people but most importantly, I learn from them at the Chamber.
