Kerry said how much of an honor it is to be given the opportunity to work with a wide variety of businesses that are in her own backyard.
Kerry said her favorite part is helping others, “Help mentor them (Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce members), they don’t get to see their potential until they get involved and it is then they see how they have improved and promoted their own business.”
