WELCOME AMBASSADOR CAROLYN GEARHART

I have been a member of the Botetourt Chamber for 11 years and an Ambassador for 3 years. I have been employed with SERVPRO of Roanoke, Montgomery & Pulaski Counties for 11+ years as a Business Development Coordinator.

SERVPRO encourages and supports my involvement with the chamber and other professional associations.
