 Chair Elect Chris Kizziar & Gloria Young Brody, Arbonne International

Gloria joined the Chamber for her business Arbonne International in 2014.
She immediately became involved as a Chamber Ambassador and a regular attendee of the "Make a Connection" networking group. She has generously donated her help and time at many of the Chamber events. She has helped direct runners at the Freedom 5K and the Sunset Santa 5K and has volunteered at the Annual Golf Classic and the Taste & Trade of Rowlett.
