To foster, promote and protect the business interest of its members and to create a positive economic, political, educational and social climate in Sun Prairie.
Before being apart of the chamber, I enjoyed a 12-year career in community health care and then spent 15 years running an independent sales business. My business leadership and management career also included work in human resources, marketing and property and casualty insurance. Since joining The Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce last year, I have revitalized the Chamber Ambassador program and created multiple new events designed to engage and connect with new and existing members during the pandemic that will endure for many years to come. Outside of the chamber, I have volunteered for the Sunshine Place and Shelter from the Storm Ministries and served as co-president of the Sun Prairie Quarterback Club. My husband and I have lived in Sun Prairie for more than 28 years and have four children. I enjoy sporting and school activities, family adventures and gardening.
I was raised in Sun Prairie, so naturally I love the community and supporting the Chamber’s growth. Being a former small business owner, I embraced the challenges and rewards of being my own boss. Since selling the business, I’ve worked in retail, customer service, financial and administrative roles. When I’m not at the Chamber, you’ll find me with my granddaughter or working in my sister’s shop, The Wire Basket. I look forward to being the first voice and face you meet when you visit the Chamber.
Outreach & Events Coordinator
Being on the Chamber team marries my experience in business, hospitality, marketing, crisis communications and overall project management together. Growing up on a family farm, I learned first-hand the power of hard work which drives me to this day. I’ve enjoyed living in Vail, Washington D.C. and now Sun Prairie for the past 12 years. With every stop along the way, I’ve had amazing opportunities to learn from industry leaders, entrepreneurs and iconic non-profit leaders. While not officially working, I love volunteer work! As your Outreach and Events Coordinator, I look forward to working behind the scenes with you or meeting you at Chamber events!
Digital Marketing Specialist
I am currently attending Madison College for Business Management. I also serve as the marketing coordinator for a property management company where I lead marketing efforts and manage different business social media accounts. I love meeting and connecting with Chamber members whenever I get the chance! During my free time, I love to go hunting, hiking, boating, atving, and spend time with my family. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing team!
