I love to coach my team. I feel the most successful when I have helped someone else succeed, see a new perspective or feel supported to do their best work.

I am encouraged by how the chamber has been engaging the whole community to identify an inclusive growth strategy with the intent of meeting the needs of our diverse population as we move into the future.
