Tell us a little but about your job and what you do: I own and operate two fitness studios and am very involved with each and every member of both facilities. My fitness studios offer effective and innovative group fitness classes and one-on one personal training both of which I get to continue to do - BEST part of my job is that I get to wear gym shoes, lycra pants and boss people around all day! :)
How has volunteering at the Chamber helped you professionally? Volunteering at the Chamber has helped me to make connections with other professionals, gain business and make very impactful personal relationships
Tell us about a great connection you made through the Chamber. Through the chamber, I have met Amanda Young, Mary Ann Bender, Sam Yousif, Nick Arestopoulos and Peg Dowling. These connections have lead me to spear-head starting a networking/leads group with these wonderful people and have been so helpful in growing our businesses.
