Chair

I recently retired after serving 27 years in the U.S. Navy and my family and I decided to settle in the Pacific NW as we truly felt this was our home. As a career military family, we are very familiar with the challenges facing today’s working military families. I have been a Marysville Tulalip Chamber Board member since 2015 and helped establish the Military Affairs Committee as a way for the Chamber to connect with the military service members, veterans, and their families living in the area. The Military Affairs Committee and the Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce are committed to supporting our military community.
