“Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company
This is my first year joining the Chamber. I’ve been very pleased with my experience and the people I’ve had an opportunity to meet so far. I truly feel that the Chamber is committed to providing impact through education and community advocacy. I’m looking forward leveraging the Chambers resources for my own continuous professional growth, as well as giving back to other professionals and business owners within the organization.”
