Thank You!
Today is my last day at the Chamber, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your support over the past few years. I will truly miss working with each and every one of the Chamber members as well as the Defiance community.

I am very excited to spend more time with my family and to focus on my new business. I have always wanted to combine both my medical and business sides, and I have found the perfect opportunity to do just that. 

Thank you again, and I hope that we will cross paths in the future.
