Meet the driving force behind the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce, and every business owners’ best friend
After a 31-year career with Pacific Bell, Mary went on to join the Lemon Grove Chamber of Commerce, becoming Executive Director in 1998. She then served as a City Council Member for the City of Lemon Grove for 12 years. Mary received the State of California “Woman of the Year” award for the 77th Assembly District in 1999.
Mary was hired in 2008 to take the helm of the newly reformed La Mesa Chamber of Commerce, both will be celebrating their 10th anniversary throughout 2018.
As President and CEO, Mary continues to represent the business community and creates events that highlight local businesses, such as:
- The Annual Salute to Local Heroes
- The Taste of La Mesa
- The Spring Fling & Summer Business Expos
Mary also supports the local business community by welcoming new business members through ribbon cuttings and evening mixers that spotlight business members along with the goods and services they provide. Mary relentlessly focuses on promoting the business owners and their businesses, who she feels are the backbone of our economy.
Join us for this great interview and find out how Mary came to believe that the biggest risk-takers in society are the small business owner, and why she is ferocious about fighting for them.
