As the new executive director of the Iola Chamber of Commerce, my first 45 days have been a whirlwind.

I truly appreciate all the training, help, warm welcomes and words of encouragement by everyone that I have had the pleasure of interacting with.

With over 30 years of business and marketing experience, my objective is contribute to Chamber members and the community is a meaningful way.

Community presentations are scheduled via Zoom through August.
