If you could be any fictional character, who would you be? Why?

What drew you to the Chamber?

→ COVID-19 cleared the clutter from my calendar and helped me re-energize and re-prioritize. I’m eager to serve and lead in our community, and I want Dickinson to take the next step as a great place to live, work, and raise a family. I’m thankful for the opportunity and the team that we have in place!
