What I do at the Chamber: My favorite part of my work is helping local businesses succeed. That means I spend my time troubleshooting, helping businesses move past road blocks, advocating for smart policies, ordinances and government regulations, and creating long term solutions to help keep Visalia the place we all love to call home.

A little about me:
I love spending time with my family. It’s my favorite. Disney is a close second. Which means, I’m a sucker for family Disney trips.

What I do at the Chamber: It’s my job to make the Chamber grow. I get to go out and bring new businesses into our organization and introduce them to what the Chamber life is all about.

A little about me: I’m a sucker for good whiskey and Raiders football. Come into the office and see my giant Bo Jackson poster!

What I do at the Chamber: Manage the Chamber’s brand and image. Communicate and promote the Chamber by designing "pretty garbage".

A little about me: I am a full-time mom of three very active kids and married to my hubby for 21 years. As a family we enjoy being active outdoors at the beach or in the mountains. When I get "me" time, I love walking up and down the aisles of Marshall's... slowly.

What I do at the Chamber: Facilitate Leadership Visalia, coordinate Oktoberfest, Visalia SOUP and Impact Leadership Conference (more details to come soon), and travel the world with the Chamber travel program. Don't be jealous!

A little about me: I've been in Visalia for 8 years and I love the community and all of the work I do for the Chamber. When I'm not at work, you can find me travelling as much as I can and spending time with my friends and family.
