By now, you’ve probably figured out that there is some new person at the Klamath Chamber, posting all these strange things on Facebook and the Chamber blog and a few other places, too. At least, I hope you have noticed! It’s a lot of work being this weird.

A little about me: I’m the same age as Heather, so if you don’t know how old she is then you don’t know how old I am. I have a Bachelor’s degree in English. I’m a published author (hence the reason I have taken over this blog for my own nefarious purposes). I am a painter (nothing you’ve seen, I’m guessing). I’m a knitter. A dreamer. A candlestick maker (okay, technically, I haven’t made candlesticks yet but it’s on the list). I’m a wife to an amazing husband and the mother to two fantastic daughters, ages 21 and 11 (I love to use parentheses even though I know I shouldn’t use them as much as I do and all my professors would be so annoyed with me right now).

I bring my wits to the table*, and the ability to turn a neat phrase. I have extensive customer service and marketing experience, and I love showing others how they can use social media to their own advantage. I’m excited to work for the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce and implement some of the ideas I have on how to market our members, build relationships, and provide a measureable asset. I’m a bit quirky, love to laugh, but know how to work hard and get things done. (*try to)

Maybe you’re worried I won’t be as professional as Heather; but let me assure you, she trained me way back when we both worked at JELD-WEN, inc. I know customer service inside out and backward, thanks to her tutelage. I know how and when to put the jokes away. Okay, I know how. When…that’s sometimes a bit iffier.

But one does what one can.

Tune in later this week, when I explain how marketing your hotel business can also tie in nicely with The Hobbit.

I knitted this hat for my husband in case of the zombie apocalypse. Then I knitted another one and sent it to Norman Reedus.

Just in case.
