As the leader of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s membership sales and retention teams, I manage a team of seven and work to increase membership through the development and execution of sales and retention strategies that bring long-term value to members of all sizes.

Additionally, I oversee all programming and events for our top 400 investors while managing sponsorship sales and corporate partnerships for the organization. Prior to joining the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, I worked as the Director of Membership and Board Relations for the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) in Washington, DC where I was responsible for driving the NAM’s growth in the medium-sized and billion-dollar manufacturing segment. I also worked alongside senior management to help grow the participation of Fortune 500 companies in membership while managing the NAM’s Board of Directors.

I began my career in DC, working on Capitol Hill for several Members of Congress and the Bush Administration, and I hold a BA in Business and Political Science from Baylor University.
