Bonnee Lallouz

Community Outreach/Marketing Consultant
Being an ambassador for the Chamber has given me great opportunities to welcome the new members at all events and teach them about networking and make sure they are comfortable walking into a room of strangers.  I love meeting new people and this is a perfect opportunity to grow your own network of people.
