Meet the Chamber Ambassadors
Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau 
Ambassador 

In 2008, Randi began her career with Edward Jones as a branch office administrator in Gulf Breeze, Florida, before moving back to California in 2010. She became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2014 and qualified for the Edward Jones Managing Partner's Conference in 2016, an honor reserved for the top client service branches in the firm. Nothing gives her more joy than seeing people she works with achieve their financial goals and dreams and knowing she was a part of it. Randi  attended California State University Sacramento and graduated with two bachelors' degrees in business marketing and sociology. Randi earned an MBA in finance from Walden University in 2009. She  enjoys hiking the many great trails around the Bay Area, spending time with her family and two-year-old nephew, and recently completed her first half-marathon. If she's not working, you'll typically find her at an Oakland Athletics game. 

Meet Randi and the other Walnut Creek Chamber Ambassadors at the monthly  Chamber BASH,  ribbon cuttings, and community events including the Walnut Creek Art & Wine Festival, Oktoberfest, Walnut Creek on Ice.
