I graduated from St Catherine University with my bachelors in Social Work. I LOVE helping people and found my passion in helping people be the best version of themselves after working with a personal trainer myself.
Being a part of the Fit Evo team means more to me than just a job. I enjoy coming into work and seeing all the amazing members and staff. I pride myself on being able to help others and make their day a little brighter. My husband, Trevor, and I are expecting a baby girl in May!

Being a part of the Chamber has been very fulfilling, I enjoy getting to know members of the community and making an impact on the town that I grew up in.
Board Member: Pastor Lorraine Daley - Restoring Lives Community Church
I’m excited to be part of this great community! Serving on the Chamber board provides opportunity to be more involved, get to know the businesses/organizations/people (and needs) in the community while helping to enhance ways to develop partnerships that will make us grow and thrive. My husband and I have been co-pastors at Restoring Lives Community Church since 2015 and opened the first Zimmerman transitional (recovery) home for women in the summer of 2017. Prior to full-time ministry, I was involved with various companies and across multiple industries spanning Financial to Construction, as a Talent Acquisition Leader and now consultant - helping companies attract and recruit top talent. I also enjoy being a Guardian Ad Litem for Hennepin County, working as an advocate for children involved in the child protection services system. I’ve been happily married for 26 years, and the proud mom of two children.
Cool beans....See you around town! Pastor Lorraine Daley

Past Board President: Jay Collins - Edward Jones
Although I am new to the Zimmerman Community, in my short time here I have already witnessed what a great town this is. With it's welcoming atmosphere and genuine residents, Zimmerman has inspired me to help make a difference in any way that I can. I began my practice with Edward Jones in 2012 in San Antonio after spending 17 years in professional ministry. My family and I relocated to the twin cities in order to be close to family and have made the Zimmerman area our new home. My vision for the Chamber is to equip our local business community to realize success, fulfillment, and prosperity.
