Manager, Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce, 2013-2015. Working with the Chamber of Commerce was an incredible opportunity to work with the local business community. I was made aware of many of the obstacles they face, doing business in the borough. I also work along side the Small Business Development Corporation and the Greenville Economic Development Corporation in educating local business on specific areas they were seeking growth. During the fall of 2015 I worked diligently to make the community aware of the support that was needed downtown to keep our businesses alive during the Main Street closure debacle.
Director, Founder Sans MOCO Gallery & Atelier, 2013-2015. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and the graciousness of hundreds of donors, my dream of a Downtown Gallery and Studio space was made alive under the umbrella of Downtown Ministries, Inc. The amount of support that was shown during the 3 1/2 years the project was "in process" showcases the wonderful community spirit that exists in this small town. I was bless to be the founder of the Gallery, but it only happened when the vision was caught by so many who came to help.
