Where are you from and what is your job? 

Born, raised and still live in the Brinston area. Current job is Manager of Direct Mail & Events for the WDMH Foundation.

What is your position on the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce executive? 

I am the President. 

Why do you think the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce is important? 

I think the Chamber is important to the businesses of South Dundas in a variety of ways: 

- A resource to businesses – help them find local/provincial/Canadian supports they need to enhance, grow and sustain their business.

- Networking opportunities – offers business owners a chance to get to know other business owners in the municipality.

- Sharing the resources available to businesses through the provincial and national chamber organizations.

- Enhanced advertising and promotional opportunities.

What is your favourite part of South Dundas? 

My favourite part of South Dundas is the people. Community support for local organizations and needs is phenomenal, both with residents and business owners. Whether it’s a family or business with deep roots in the area, or one that has recently moved here – the support is wonderful.

I grew up in a family with multiple businesses, and have also owned a business. I understand the challenges, sacrifices, and rewards that go along with it. 

 

I would like to encourage all South Dundas businesses to become Chamber members to take advantage of what is available to them as a member. I look forward to a great partnership between the Chamber, the Municipality of South Dundas, the Iroquois & District Business Group, the Morrisburg BIA, and all South Dundas businesses and organizations. Working together, we can make South Dundas a destination to be envied!

What is your position on the Chamber Executive?

Office Manager

Why do you think the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce is important?

When a business is a member of the chamber, they have access to many cost-savings programs through us, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. As well as events held throughout the year.

What is your favourite part of South Dundas? 

The people! Regardless of a person's demographics, everyone treats everyone the same. No one here is better than anyone else.  We are all truly equals and there is also the great feeling of wanting to help thy neighbour. That's what makes South Dundas home!
