“Several years ago, I left nineteen years in corporate management and embarked on a new career in real estate. Initially intimidated by the prospect of starting a new career, I was encouraged by friend and Monrovia business legend Pam Fitzpatrick to not only join the Chamber but take an active involvement it. Through active involvement as a Chamber Ambassador, my business prospects have grown but more importantly, the business and personal relationships established through the Chamber are priceless.”

“As the Community Outreach Specialist for the Blood Donor Center, my job is to educate the community about the importance of blood and platelet donations for patients at City of Hope. I always look forward to Monrovia Chamber events, and when I hear the words “here comes our Community Vampire,” I know that it is a term of endearment, and that I have done a good job. Through our work with the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce we have gained MANY community partners who have joined us in the fight against cancer. Whether it has been hosting a blood drive, donating snacks or donor gifts, coming to the center to donate blood or platelets, or helping us spread the word to family and friends, the Monrovia community has really come through for patients in the fight of their lives. Together we make a difference, and we truly appreciate your continued support.”
