I have good personal relationship skills and am able to communicate well verbally and in writing.  I have prepared and given a variety of presentations for different audiences including city councils, the board of county commissioners, management teams, stakeholders, employees, colleagues, business leaders, the general public, legislators, civic and business organizations and neighborhood groups.  

I have a diversified background in economic development. Work experience has involved different aspects of tourism and promotion working with other economic development agencies such as; neighboring chambers of commerce, downtown association’s, economic resource councils,  non-profits, and visitor authorities.  I have worked successfully with other jurisdictions and levels of government, including county and city entities and neighboring cities on joint projects and community programs.

I oversee and coordinate annual budget preparation with the Board of Directors to present a supported budget plan. Priorities and needs are balanced across the organization based on the overall direction provided by the Directors of the Association.
