2023 Gilmer Area Chamber of Commerce President

Monday, January 09, 2023
2023 Gilmer Area Chamber of Commerce President, Sara Kate Jenkins. I am a Gilmer native. After graduating high school, I have had many ventures with not knowing where I wanted to land in life. I have explored the medical field, aesthetics, event planning, emergency telecommunications, and office management. While working in emergency services I made the transition to Code Enforcement where my journey with the Chamber of Commerce and my community began. During my five years at the Chamber of Commerce I have volunteered in the organization and planning of several event. I have created the Annual Battle of the Businesses Softball Tournament where a portion of the proceeds benefit a local non-profit organization.
