I am the Executive Director of the Orchard Park Chamber of Commerce. My role is to provide strategic direction and oversight for program development, operations management and enhancing current programs and benefits for its members. I have been an active participant as a Board and Chamber member for over 30 years, and as a Business Marketing teacher for the Orchard Park High School for over 30 years, retiring from that position in 2012. I have been a professional musician for 45 years and am currently with the Boys of Summer Band for the past 27 years.
Being an active participant in the Orchard Park Community has always been a passion of mine. I received the Post of Fame Award in 2014 and hold it proudly. Orchard Park is a special place with so many wonderful qualities. Showcasing our community is a privilege and critical for the growth of our businesses.
The Chamber’s mission is to serve our membership as a catalyst – the organization through which business and professional people work together for the common good of the community. Colleen Baker, our Associate Director and Dawn Jenkinson, our Administrative Assistant help to drive our mission with their compassion and support for our entire membership.
