If you have any specific questions on our organization, our Board of Directors, Program of Work, staff, policies, or positions, you’ll want to reach out to me. I also do my best to keep you informed and educated through Community Affairs Luncheons, Legislative Cracker Barrels, Candidate Forums, Aberdeen Day, weekly email correspondence, and the Chamber’s website. I also facilitate the Leadership Aberdeen program and Leadercast, and can get you involved in committees and programs that focus on transportation and military/veteran issues.

If you are as committed to promoting and marketing our community as much as I am, and have an opportunity for us to consider, please give me a call as I manage marketing funds from the City. Plus, I’ll help you promote your business and opportunities of interest to our members through our PROGRESS Magazine, the Membership Directory, and other Chamber resources. If you are interested in participating in hands-on committee work through the Ag Committee, Enhance Aberdeen, or Health & Wellness, I would love to get you involved in their events and efforts too!

Outreach & Engagement

I focus on membership recruitment, assisting members with retention of employees through Chamber involvement and engagement, and serving as the first contact for our members and citizens who reach out to the Chamber. Plus I would love to get your business and your employees engaged through the committees I manage that focus on networking and community outreach such as Diplomats, or through the EDGE for young professionals.
