My name is Christine Jackson, and I am your new Executive Director of the Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce. A little about me:
I relocated from Virginia to Texas nearly ten years ago. Before joining the Chamber, I served as a healthcare marketer for some agencies here in East Texas. I have more than 25 years of marketing, public relations, event planning, non-profit, and association management experience.
I grew up in Harrisonburg, VA and graduated with a degree in communications/public relations from James Madison University in 1991. I live on Lake Bob Sandlin in Leesburg with my husband, Bobby. I am a member of Eaves Tabernacle Baptist Church. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and family, gardening, and “junking”/antiquing. I look forward to meeting each of you and serving as your chamber director. Please feel free to contact me at any time. (Office: 903-856-3442 / Cell: 903-932-5823)
