Ambassador Spotlight
Motto or Favorite Quote:
If you want something different, then you have got to DO something different.
What are you currently most excited about with your work/career?
I am excited about the unlimited opportunities Mary Kay has to offer, including flexibility of scheduling, the freedom to work with whom I choose, the opportunity to have a positive impact on people's lives, which in turn affects their families positively. I LOVE that Mary Kay stays on trend and continuously we have the BEST products to share with our customers, accompanied with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
What do you enjoy most about living, working and playing in Siouxland?
I LOVE what I call the "folksy" feel of Siouxland. I moved here about 5 years ago, and immediately fell in love with the community and felt comfortable, as if I had "come home". There are so many opportunities locally for community events such as concerts, as well as business growth.
What would you tell someone considering becoming a Siouxland Chamber investor?
What are you waiting for? There is so much opportunity you are missing out on...get on board.
