When Nicole Crosby came to Sarnia-Lambton from the London area about 12 years ago, she was already an experienced financial service professional, having worked in banks in that area.

And while she knew practically no one in this area, she was determined to do something about it.

That something was to join the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce and become active in the business community.

‘I knew I needed to get to know people and I knew the Chamber was a great way to get to know the community and in particular the business people here,” she said. “Since then, I’ve probably served on every single one of the Chamber’s committees.”

Earlier this year, Nicole joined the board of directors of the Chamber, a logical step as far as she is concerned.

“I’ve continued with the Chamber as a way to maintain business relationships,” Nicole added. “At one point, I was self-employed and Chamber membership is not only a great way to network but just to get to know what’s going on in the community. It helps keep me aware and involved.”
