Tell us a little about yourself! Where did you work previously before your role here at the Chamber? 

I worked for the First Aid & Safety Division of Cintas previously and part of my sales territory consisted of Lancaster County! My favorite aspect of sales is being able to build relationships with clients on a personal level and my second favorite aspect of sales would have to be presenting!

What are some of your hobbies or passions or interests?

I enjoy playing basketball as well as completing boxing training with my son. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends watching movies or going out to dinner together. I follow the Marvel universe as well as the DC universe closely, I also follow the NBA and NFL daily.

Do you have a quote you are inspired by?

“Service to others is the rent you pay for the room here on earth.” – Muhammad Ali

What do you love about the Lancaster County community?

I have always felt that I am appreciated in Lancaster County because the community has welcomed me with open arms since the day I stepped foot on Millersville’s campus as an MU student. I love that I am able to be myself and feel comfortable as I am because, unfortunately, this is not the case in every county. My interactions with the Lancaster County community have always been pleasant and this is largely why I find happiness in watching the continuous growth and success of Lancaster County.

What are you most excited about in joining the Lancaster Chamber team? 

I am most excited about being part of a team that has proven to have a great impact within Lancaster County, but also continues to dedicate themselves to the betterment of Lancaster County. The Lancaster Chamber clearly believes in unifying the community and I believe that a unified community is the greatest step to a healthy and successful community! For the reasons mentioned above, I say with great pride, that I am part of this team and excited to help make a difference.
