When it comes to community engagement, I have been involved in many fundraisers to support various organizations. I have planned and organized Facebook auctions, 50/50 tickets, in-person fundraiser concerts (prior to COVID), and more. 

When I think about what I can bring to the Chamber of Commerce, it would be my outgoing personality, my unwavering support for the community, and my desire to create change. I want to meet the community where they are at and see positive growth in every person who resides here.
