The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce recently welcomed two new staff members: membership coordinator Kimberly Moore and executive assistant Ashley Welch.
Moore will be responsible for communicating with current and potential members, as well as facilitating sponsorship, marketing opportunities and membership development.
“It was a delightful surprise to find out that Kimberly and I had been in high school right around the same time and for her to have found her way to our organization seems fated. She brings with her a wealth of professionalism and education, and we are excited to have her with us,” Chamber CEO Leah Poole said.
Moore is originally from Miami, Florida and has been a resident of Liberty County on and off for several years. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education from Valdosta State and a Master’s degree in Teaching Skills and Methodology from Cambridge College.
“I am very happy to have joined the Chamber team, and I am equally excited to see what the future brings,” Moore said.
Welch will be responsible for assisting the CEO, maintaining and updating various databases, as well as coordinating general operations such as office and vendor-related activities.
“It is our pleasure to have Ashley on-board. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge as both an educated professional and Navy spouse,” Poole said.
Welch is originally from Winter Haven, Fla., and throughout the years spent as a military spouse has gained an extensive background in program administration and customer service. She is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, Certified Phlebotomist and Certified EKG Technician. Her husband is currently serving as a U.S. Navy recruiter in Liberty County, and their family have been residents of the local area for more than a year.
“I am very excited to work with the remarkable staff at the chamber and all of our wonderful members. I look forward to starting this new chapter in my professional career,” Welch said.
