Volunteer Role(s) at Chamber: Networking queen, I love connecting people. I was one of the leads on the Retail Warehouse Sale; we brought in a great awareness for our local retail community and revenue in the month of Feb., typically a dead month for retailers.
Tell us a little but about your job and what you do: I have a personal styling consultancy. I am known for helping clients identify their personal style to suit their lifestyle, maximize their wardrobe investment and learn to wear the right pieces to achieve their goals and be the best version of themselves.
How has volunteering at the Chamber helped you professionally? Working with the 'Dream Team' as we called ourselves was productive, super fun and created long lasting relationships for the 4 of us. Like going to camp! I have made so very many great connections with in the Chamber community, grown my network and added 5 new clients in just 8 months.
Tell us about a great connection you made through the Chamber. I attended the Women In Business panel on social media, and connected with Sue Koch (via facebook!) after. It was an impressive group. She and I met, and hired each other as we were both in need of each other's services! Now, we have become buddies: constantly refer each other, go to Chamber events together, and 'have each others backs'.
What are a few of your favorite local businesses? Ahh, there are so many. Lively Athletics & Trends, of course. Hit it Fitness & Core Power for work outs, Spilt Milk for yummy coffee & quiche, Saigon Pho for the best Vietnamese in the whole of Chicago. Amerika best newbie restaurant, and Citrine for patio, mixology and scrumptious bites.
