Chamber President, Little Miami Chamber Alliance
Born and raised in Beavercreek, Ohio I attended Carroll High School and have been a swimmer my entire life. I received my undergraduate degree at Xavier University where I also participated on the swim team for four years. After graduating in 1989 I began to work at USA Today Newspaper as a Regional Marketing Manager. After marrying James Collins IV, we moved to Tampa, FL where I worked for the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA for 6 years as an Executive Director. After my second child’s birth, we moved back to the tri-state area and I continued to work for the Greater Cincinnati YMCA for 10 years on a part time basis. I pursued full-time work and became the Development Director at Ohio Valley Voices for 6 years. Throughout my years at the YMCA and Ohio Valley Voices I was active in the Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce. I became the President of the Chamber (now called the Little Miami River Chamber Alliance) in 2013. Today, I’m continuing to enjoy my work at the chamber and keeping up with my three children while residing in Miami Township with Jim. My husband and I enjoy yoga, traveling and lake (and beach) time!
