South Cobb Business Association President 2017
My story begins in 2010 when it became apparent that I needed to join a Chamber to begin a journey of establishing relationships all throughout Metro Atlanta.
It begin with the Carroll Chamber, the Cobb Chamber, the Paulding and the Douglas Chamber over the years as I became an Ambassador/Diplomat for each one. In 2016, I became Diplomat of the Year for the Douglas Chamber.
In 2010 I also joined the South Cobb Business Association in a Board Member role where I became President in 2017. Since 2010, I have been on the Board of the West Cobb Business Association, the Vinings Business Association, the Marietta Business Association and the Smyrna Business Association. I held different positions with each one including Membership Director. Currently I am on the Board of the Powder Springs Business Group. In 2018, I was chosen a Member of the Year for the West Cobb Business Association.
The relationships I have formed over the years has now allowed me to help my client small business owners with introductions to other small business owners to help them grow their businesses. The relationships I have made at the local government levels have made it possible for me to know whom to go to to help my clients with permits, licenses and registrations in a faster period of time. The networking meeting I attend allow me to advocate for my clients as well.
During the last 20 years, I have has the opportunity to manage 370 golf tournaments under my former company, Georgia Golf Events Group. I became branded as "Dr. Golf" in 2014. This experience allows me to help plan and advice on any events my clients develop as well as help with sponsors. I am currently the Tournament Director for the Cops and Kids Golf Tournament in Cobb County.
My marketing experience and knowledge that I developed over the years, has given me the opportunity to advise my clients as their marketing plans. From vendor recommendations to helping book my clients for speaking engagements, the journey I have taken is always to help others grow their businesses at a very affordable cost.
