I have loved the city of Hartselle since I moved here with my family at four years old. I attended Hartselle City Schools from K-12 and graduated with honors in 2006 from Hartselle High School. In 2011, I received my Bachelor of Music Degree from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, and have subsequently done career work in music publishing, music education, and church administration. Since 2006, I have lived and worked in Mississippi, New York, Tennessee, England, and Kentucky, but I have found that Hartselle is truly home. My husband and I moved our family back to Hartselle in 2017, and we now reside here with our children, Hank, Chet, Mollie Jane, and our dog, Merle.
I have been with the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce since March of 2021, and I am honored to serve as the Director of Programs and Events. I take great joy in being able to help equip business owners with the tools and information they need to succeed through events like Lunch & Learns and Breakfasts & Business, to educate the community about economic vitality and community involvement through initiatives like Community Branding and our Impact Student Leadership Program, and to bring the Hartselle and surrounding communities together for special events like the Cinderella Ball, Serve Day, and the Depot Days Festival. Programs and events not only bring beauty, education, and, in turn, engagement, but they also help display the importance and relevance of a Chamber of Commerce. I am blessed to help direct our Chamber’s 100+ events each year, from Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies to week-long festivals, and I strive to complete each with excellence.
The vision of the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce is to build community through business. As a lover of people, I look forward to coming to work each day, knowing that I am working to promote the growth and well-being of our special city by building relationships with its wonderful residents and business owners. Thank you to the HACC Board of Directors and all of our wonderful volunteers for entrusting me with this position of leadership. I look forward to all of the wonderful things we will accomplish together!
