It is a great honor to be involved in the community through the Wallaceburg & District Chamber of Commerce. I currently live in Dresden with my husband Carl, 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 16 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, 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. My plan is to continue to personally visit all the Chamber members. If there is anything you would like to happen or changed please don’t hesitate to give me a call at 519-627-1443 and we will chat or drop by the office.
