Hello! My name is Moriah Gerber and I will be taking on the role as the Excelsior-Lake Minnetonka Chamber of Commerce Intern this summer. I’m so excited to share this experience with all of you! Before I dive into the Chamber experience, I want to introduce myself a little.
I just finished my junior year at the University of Kansas where I study Marketing and Spanish. Although I love Lawrence, I will always be a Minnesota girl. I was born and raised in Chaska where I danced at River Valley Dance Academy and on the Chaska High School Dance Team. There was never a dull moment for me in high school because I kept myself very busy with all sorts of extra-curricular activities. While I lived in Chaska, I spent a large chunk of my time in Excelsior – it’s like a second home to me!
Growing up I quickly found a love and passion for events. I absolutely love putting together an experience for people where they can make some of their best memories. My end goal is to become a wedding planner, but I’m currently finding a bigger interest in community events. As you probably could have guessed, I’m bursting with excitement for this summer with the Chamber and all it has to offer!
Just to share a few fun facts about me, I absolutely love all things Disney! Friends is my favorite TV show, and Kenny Chesney is one of my favorite artists. I don’t think that there can ever be enough of the color pink, and family is the most important thing to me. I’m the youngest of four, but including spouses, kids, and fur-babies our family is pretty big! I love spending time with my friends, eating ice cream at Licks, and boating on the lake (as most Minnesotans do). I’m so looking forward to this summer and all the opportunities it holds, but I’m mostly eager to get to know all of you – the community!
During my time with the Chamber of Commerce I hope to bring a new perspective of the Chamber and all that it does. This blog is going to be a fun mix of city event information, interviews, and some “walk-alongs.” Stay tuned for my weekly blogs/vlogs to get the inside scoop of the Chamber!
