AMBASSADOR'S CORNER

Meet Andie Brandow


This month we are featuring Ambassador Andie Brandow of Central Michigan Rehabilitation where she has worked for the last 17 years. She has held numerous positions at Central Michigan Rehab and is currently the Executive of Daily Operations. Andie works at all four of Central Michigan Rehab's locations and loves that her staff works so well together as a team.


Andie grew up in Marshall, Michigan where her family owned a restaurant. She attended Kellogg Community College as well as Davenport University. She is currently continuing her education with classes at Mid Michigan College. Andie enjoys spending time with family and exploring our area's beautiful parks.


Andie has been an ambassador since January and says that her favorite part, other than meeting people, has been learning about and interacting with different area businesses. She has enjoyed seeing new companies and says the Ambassador program has been eye-opening to new opportunities in the community. 

Do you enjoy mentoring and meeting new people? Maybe you have the calling to become an Ambassador?

Our ambassadors play a crucial role to maintain contact with Chamber members and help them recognize and utilize the value of their membership. They also ensure you are getting what you want out of our membership.

Ambassadors serve in many ways, such as:

  • Greeting members at Chamber functions and performing other goodwill projects such as ribbon cuttings, etc.
  • Encouraging participation of current members at Chamber functions
  • Visiting members in their businesses, and subsequently providing feedback to the Chamber
  • Mentoring new members

If you would like to know more about being a Chamber Ambassador, contact Deena at deenakalb@mt-pleasant.net.
