Addison County Chamber of Commerce: For nearly a decade I worked for the Addison County Chamber, initially as Marketing and Communications Director and then as Executive Director. During my tenure as ED, I worked with the Board of Directors to stabilize membership in an era of declining participation in Vermont chambers. We introduced a new strategy for calculating membership investment—value-based vs. fair share model—and within three years returned to profitability and increased financial reserves. I was responsible for developing an annual budget, managing staff, as well as all communication channels for membership and tourism which included print publications, website, and social media.
Vermont Highway Safety Alliance: In 2021 I was hired on a contract basis to become the first Executive Director of the Vermont Highway Safety Alliance (VHSA). The VHSA's mission is to minimize the occurrence and severity of highway crashes, and related injuries and fatalities. My work is to develop, guide, and plan programs for the VHSA, working in partnership with state and federal agencies and partners.
