My first six months on the job have been a whirlwind of meeting new people, understanding our current needs and getting to know our communities.  I am working hard to make my way throughout the county on a regular basis, introducing myself and having conversations about what our organization can do to help.  I truly believe this one-on-one approach will yield the best result.  Our business climate is strong in Tama County and growing our existing businesses is one of my most important tasks.  Yes, we are actively recruiting more business, but working right here at home is extremely important.  Connecting and encouraging collaboration is already proving to be a strategy that has added new growth for area businesses.  This is only the beginning.  I have so many ideas and nearly every community is working on a project right now.  I can feel the momentum building and I am proud to play a role in our short-term and long-term growth.  There is so much to work on and I am thrilled every day to see our county take a step forward.  Connectivity and collaboration are key.  I can bring enough enthusiasm to the table for all our us!  I want to make a difference and I thank TCEDC for giving me this opportunity.

Let’s get busy everyone!
