Jill Misselbrook
Executive Director

It is a great honor to be involved in the community through the Wallaceburg & District Chamber of Commerce for almost 6 years now. I currently live in Dresden with my husband Carl, and son Cameron while my eldest son, Justin has left the nest. My husband and I have been operating a business out of our home “CJ Window Tinting” in Dresden for 19 years. In addition to my business, I bring with me over 25 years of newspaper, radio advertising, and marketing experience in the Chatham- Kent area. I make it a priority to keep good standing, and professional relationships with past customers, ensuring a successful business experience.

In addition to my previous industry work, I have volunteered for several non-profit organizations such as Dresden Minor Hockey Moms, The Canadian Cancer Society, Relay for Life, and the Dresden Community Food Bank. I take pride in giving back to the community in any way I can.

I am enjoying being involved with the businesses in the community of Wallaceburg & area. I plan to continue to personally visit all the Chamber members & bring new ideas to the Wallaceburg Chamber. If there is anything you would like to happen or change please don’t hesitate to give me a call at 519-627-1443 and we will chat or drop by the office. The Wallaceburg & District Chamber of Commerce hours are Monday to Thursday 9 AM-4 PM 152 Duncan St, Wallaceburg.
