“Marie’s dedication to the chamber has been such a great help to me personally, and to the organization. Her spirit of involvement continues to amaze me. She is responsible for so much and yet always has the time to take on more. Marie’s upbeat personality and great sense of humor makes working with her a pleasure. On behalf of the Chamber, we applaud and congratulate her on this award, it is well deserved,” commented Mary Ann Severance, president of the GVRCC.

“I am humbled by this Award from the Chamber. I have been a part of the Great Valley and Chester County communities since 1997, and hopefully, have contributed in a small way to its growth. It is only through the support given to me by a great University, Immaculata, that I am able to assist the Great Valley Chamber, its members, and the community,” commented Moughan.
