Why did you choose the St. Pete Chamber?
I chose the St. Pete Chamber because it is one of the best organizations in Pinellas County. It plays a key role in the improvements and development of the city of St. Pete. The St. Pete Chamber opens the door for individuals to grow their businesses. It is really important for a city like St. Petersburg to have an active Chamber to fulfill and accomplish each small or big tasks to keep the opportunities open for more great business to come.
What is your favorite memory/experience volunteering with the Chamber?
I have many favorite memories and experiences with the St. Pete Chamber. For example, I enjoy attending ribbon cuttings and helping the Chamber and its members who are opening a new business around town. It is always fun and rewarding to be part of the Chamber and to represent the organization as an Ambassador.
In your opinion, what are the professional and personal benefits of being a Chamber Ambassador?
Being an Ambassador has many professional and personal benefits. For instance, if you are an Ambassador, you will be able to attend different ribbon cuttings which will help others to grow their business and feel supported. This will create strong roots for others to believe in this city and trust to invest/open their businesses. It also helps you to improve your own network personally and to improve your business while you are helping others.
What do you enjoy most about living, working and playing in St. Pete?
St. Pete is a fun city. I love the recreation facilities and the downtown area. St. Petersburg also offers beautiful beaches. This city has a "can-do" attitude.
