Background: In early 2016 I was bit by the Chamber bug, as many say. Interning with the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce revealed to me the ability to utilize my skills to network, advocate and connect public and private, for-profit and non-profit sectors. Throughout the course of the next four years I worked inside 3 different Chambers of Commerce across 3 states, discovering the diverse needs of varying localities from urban cities to rural communities and all in between. During my career I have worked on projects and issues relating to agriculture, education, economic development, small business, workforce, health and community wellness.
