What made you want to become active in the chamber?
The OC chamber is an active organization that truly cares about the businesses and industries that are in our community. I wanted to be a part of the mission of continuing to promote local businesses and opportunities for the community to grow and prosper.

Why do you serve on the Board of Directors?
I chose to serve in order to lead by example of being a good servant and steward for our business community.

What is the Chambers role in the business community?
I think the Chamber’s role is to provide support to local businesses and organizations, networking opportunities for business owners and managers, a recruiting organization and welcoming committee to our community for new opportunities, and to be a centralized voice of optimism and promotion of our businesses, communities, resources and citizens.

What piece of advice would you give to a business who was thinking about joining the chamber?
I believe it is essential for businesses to join the Chamber to become a team member of the community. The benefits of an active and productive chamber far exceed any costs or time commitment. Each Chamber Member benefits from the inclusion of others to help promote and grow a vibrant economic community to be enjoyed by all.
