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.

I'm the primary event planner for the Chamber, so if you have a question on any of the events hosted by the Chamber, please reach out to me. Plus if your businesses want to host a ribbon cutting or groundbreaking, I'll get the Chamber Ambassadors there and help promote the event on social media. I also take care of all Business After Hours Mixers, so if you're business would like to host or sponsor, give me a call.

Membership & Engagement

I focus mostly on membership recruitment and retention. If you want to know the benefits of being a Chamber member, I'm the one to ask. I also love to get your business and your employees engaged through the committees I manage that focus on networking and community outreach such as Diplomats, Health & Wellness, Enhance Aberdeen or through the EDGE for young professionals.

Stop by and I'll be the first person assisting you with questions about the Chamber or the community. 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.
