Sherry’s passion is helping people. For her, she is successful when individuals, businesses or projects thrive. Becoming the chamber’s CEO was not planned but certainly valued. She believes in “we are all better together” and cultivates relationships that empower our community and businesses.
She loves givng back to the community and does it by volunteering with many non-profits and is slated to be the next President of Encinitas Rotary. She enjoys the beaches, the art, walking trails, and dining in the local restaurants with friends and business associates.
After making a significant and positive impact in the birthing world of San Diego from 2000 – 2020, Linda Goldsmith’s birth work “cup was full” and she fully retired from it by the end of 2020. She knew she wanted to return to her business roots of Marketing and Advertising.
She heard about the opening at the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce and had a strong feeling that is where her next career chapter in life would play out. With statistical odds against her, Goldsmith landed the job and has been thrilled in the role of Membership Coordinator ever since September 2020! “Encinitas doesn’t just feel like home, it IS home”, says the 22-year Encinitas resident. Goldsmith loves connecting people and businesses, helping her community stay economically healthy, all the while maintaining and valuing the Encinitas “beach town” vibe.
Christian's passion for seeing not only businesses flourish and grow but individuals as well was one of the main reasons he began to work at the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce. At the Chamber, he is able to combine his skills in different creative mediums as well as knowledge of the social media world to help propel the Chamber as well as local businesses forward.
In June of 2021, Christian graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing. What steered him into marketing was his eagerness to learn not only the creative process but the analytical process as well. He is also a self-taught photographer and videographer capturing photos of different scenery, events and people.
