Why did you want to serve on the Board of Directors?
In order to help shape the direction of the business community in Apopka going forward.
What is your business philosophy?
I strive to establish life-long relationships with my clients by offering superior product expertise, exceptional customer service, and absolute honesty. My clients determine my success by choosing my agency based on my ability to offer professional insurance and financial services in a family-like atmosphere while exceeding their every expectation!
What is your proudest achievement?
Being married to my best friend Henry, with whom I have two wonderful children, Jacob, 17 and Noelle, 10.
What have you found most valuable about your involvement with the Chamber?
The relationships and friendships I have made with other business and community leaders throughout Apopka. I didn’t know anyone when I moved to Apopka to open my agency in 2007 and with the assistance of the Chamber, in a few short years, I feel like I have lived here forever!
What do you think makes the Apopka Area Chamber of
Commerce different from other business organizations?
The Apopka Chamber truly considers its members like family and the Chamber provides many different ways to assist you in the success of your business! Unlike other business organizations that just want your membership dues and have little interest in you or your business, the Apopka Chamber encourages its members to attend and take advantage of as many events, advertising opportunities, and leadership possibilities as possible.
