Farmington Hills resident since 2017
I bring to this role as CEO of the Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce experience growing organizations, exceeding year over year metrics and relevant experience as a business owner. As a business consultant this position extends my reach to emerging and existing businesses in need of advocacy, education and visibility in our community. I see Greater Farmington as the leader of revitalizing what business looks like in diverse communities. We are home to a thriving downtown area, large corporations and small businesses.
I plan to bring a new level of excitement, cohesion and strengthening of our own business ecosystem. I plan to bring more visibility to Black owned, minority owned and women owned businesses. Even more, I plan to grow our membership by 50% over the next year to attract more entrepreneurs to our city. I have already started partnering with other chambers to build momentum and networking opportunities for our businesses. In 2024, Greater Farmington will be the most attractive business community in Oakland County.
