AMBASSADOR SPOTLIGHT
What are you currently most excited about with your work/career? I'm most excited about the brand new hotel connected to our Convention Center - what a great addition to the Siouxland area!

What is your motto or favorite quote? Good leaders are trailblazers, making a path for others to follow. Great leaders, however, inspire their people to reach higher, dream bigger, and achieve greater. Perhaps the most important leadership skill you can develop is the ability to provide inspiration to your team.

What are you looking forward to in the next 10 years? I'm looking forward to the growth and development of our downtown area.
