Being the child of a Marine, I have lived in many places, but I can proudly say I am a native Virginian. I graduated James Madison University in 2017 with a degree in Public Relations and Journalism. My career goals centered around working in design, communications, and photography. The Chamber’s open position for a Communications Coordinator hit all these checks and many more. From my research, the Chamber was similar to previous places I worked for, and I knew the Chamber was a place I would thrive in. On a sunny February morning, I got the lucky call from Kate while I was out walking my miniature dachshund Tank with my mom.
