How has being involved in the chamber helped your business?

Being involved has brought more exposure to my business over the years, which has put me in contact with many different people and organizations.

Ten years from now, how will things have changed?

It is my hope that our next generation will flourish from all of our efforts and that they will continue the hard work of the chamber, which is to maintain and enhance the economic environment in Copiague, making it a better place to work, live and raise a family.

Tell us something no one knows about your community.

Although we are a diverse community we are very united in our efforts. We have a number of longtime residents who both work and reside in Copiague.

Tell us something no one knows about yourself.

I met my husband in Copiague High School. He was born and raised in Copiague. When I fell in love with him I also fell in love with Copiague. Copiague has always been a close-knit town and a diversified town. Everyone here comes together and works very hard together to make Copiague a better place to work in and to raise your family in, and that has always been my goal!
