Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce ambassadors work to engage new investors by extending the hand of friendship. Our devoted volunteers welcome new local businesses through ribbon-cuttings, greet individuals at networking events and visit investors to make sure they are getting the most out of their chamber investment.
Ambassadors serve as an extension of the chamber team and play a key role in supporting investors. Learn more about Myrtle Beach Area Chamber’s ambassador program and check out the entire ambassador team.
Tell us about your business and the role you play in it.
Everyone has a deep-down desire and passion. I coach them by giving them tools and asking the right questions to help them find their ideal vision. I enjoy helping people get inspired about working on their future.
What do you love about being a chamber ambassador?
Being a chamber ambassador takes your membership to a whole new level. I joined the chamber to network and meet people. By serving as an ambassador, I get to go to businesses and learn more about them. Also, I really enjoy helping businesses take advantage of all the opportunities that the chamber provides its investors. It's rewarding to be part of helping businesses attract new customers, or make great connections.
What's your favorite thing to do in Myrtle Beach?
I love Brookgreen Gardens! I am fortunate that I live close to Brookgreen. I go to the zoo quite a lot and like to eat lunch in the restaurant. I am a Friend of Brookgreen, so sometimes I just go there for my morning walks. I had a long career in advertising, and my coworkers and friends would come to me and ask for advice in all kinds of situations. It was rewarding to help them figure out their next steps or future. Then one day I read a coaching book and realized that was what I wanted to do.

How do you (or your business) give back to the community?
I am an active member of Women In Networking (WIN), a philanthropic networking group. I am also treasurer of Friends of Brookgreen Gardens (fundraising group). I also hold support groups for people who are caring for their elderly parents or spouses.
Anything else you want to share about yourself?
I enjoy holding workshops and speaking to groups about being successful in life. I also coach employees in businesses about being successful in life in all areas so that they can become more productive and happier. I have been coaching people to success since 2008. I live in Surfside Beach with my husband, Rich and our five cats. I have a passion for animals, travel and writing.
