"As a businesswoman who loves Lubbock, my involvement with the Lubbock Chamber is a natural fit. Whether during my time in Leadership Lubbock, my appointment as the first female chairperson of the Government Relations Committee, my service on the Board of Directors, or, now, my service on the Board's Executive Committee, I have always been amazed by what the Chamber does for local business and our community as a whole. The company I am blessed to lead, StarCare Specialty Health System, directly benefits from the Chamber's prominent position within our community. Because of the Chamber, I am afforded many opportunities to network and interact with other local leaders and influencers. If that wasn't enough, I truly enjoy the Chamber's activities; the people I've met and get to spend time with have become of some of my favorite friends."
