INDIVIDUAL MEMBER

We moved from the Pacific NW to Fallbrook six years ago for the weather. We didn’t know a single person here and right away I noticed something special about this community. After attending a few events, I knew I wanted to be a part of the Chamber and become involved in the community. There are many opportunities to grow whether you are a business owner or an individual member like myself. I have met so many amazing people. The Chamber has done a phenomenal job in making Fallbrook the Friendly Village.

My interests are working in the yard while soaking up this beautiful sunshine!

As a financial advisor, I get to help people build income strategies for living in retirement. It is always important to have a plan for what you have saved, whether you are currently enjoying your later years or still have a ways to go. I am happy to sit down with you and plan out your goals together!

Personal Interests: I love music and playing the saxophone, talking it up about all things baseball, and spending time at my Church. Some also say I am a bit of a comedian, which now makes sense and explains why people are always laughing at me!

Being a small town in a big state, I love the community has formed in Fallbrook, and that is fostered by the members and team here at the Chamber. There is an authenticity among the folks here, focusing on building relationships more than simply tossing business cards around – something you don’t see in many Chambers.
