Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce LogoWhat motivated you to get involved with the Chamber?
When we BELONG to a community, we have a responsibility to ENGAGE. As that happens, synergy occurs and our community becomes better positioned to THRIVE.

What Chamber boards/committees do you serve on? Why?
I proudly serve on the GBCC Board of Directors. I value diversity in perspectives and believe representation of the nonprofit sector is critically important when examining the quality of life in our region. As a member of the Marketing Committee, I offer more than a decade’s worth of corporate communications experience to strategize GBCC’s awesome value proposition.

What have you gained since being involved with the Chamber?
I’ve gained an even greater appreciation for Beloit’s beauty, history, evolution and opportunities. Of course, relationships are gold and I’ve been thrilled to meet so many dynamic professionals at various GBCC events.

What are you currently reading/watching?
Watching Ted Lasso on AppleTV and reading “Sister Outsider” by Audre Lorde.
