Our advisory Council is a big part of the direction the group is headed. Final decisions such as which events to move forward with, where funds are allocated or who to feature in our Speaker Series are approved by the Advisory Council. The Council is run by young professionals who have dedicated their time and expertise to make this group what it is today. Often our Council Members serve on our committees and are a voice for our group in Citrus Height Chamber events. So, it’s time to meet the Advisory Council!

Jennifer grew up in Antelope, CA with her tight-knit, large family who loves to entertain. Being social from a young age made networking, event planning and marketing a natural transition into her professional career.
She has helped build up brands like Servpro, Moet Chandon, Belvedere, MGD 64, LivNekedClothing, Shannin Leah Artistry, Extreme Sports Network Channel and many more by promotional marketing and using her extensive network of contacts.
Jennifer, then transitioned into using her knowledge and savvy of party planning into an admired, honed skill. She has hosted many successful golf tournaments, fundraisers, private parties and fun social events.
Throughout Jennifer’s career one mantra has remained at the forefront of what drives her and makes her successful. She knows that people won’t necessarily remember what she sold them –what people remember is the way she made them feel. She likes to remind her core group to forget about the business outlook and be on the outlook for business!
