July’s “Ambassador Spotlight” is on Cherie Jones, USHealth Advisors:
I’m a graduate of Institute a 6 year program that is implemented by the US Chamber of Commerce. Owner of Specialty Maintenance Supply 2007-Present. Supplying household/office supplies in the oilfield. Licensed Agent with USHEALTH Advisors 2015-Present. Offering affordable options to health coverage. Co-owner of Dallas Karting Complex in Caddo Mills, Texas with my husband, Mike Jones.
My love is helping with the rescue group Recycled Pomeranians out of Garland. Working in the oilfield for so many years, I spent the majority of my time in/out of my car driving to other states. I had no sense of community. When I found USHEALTH Advisors for my own personal health coverage, I loved the product so much I went to work representing their amazing products and company. I finally had a profession that allowed me work within the community and help my neighbors.
We are proud to have Cherie Jones as an Ambassador for the Chamber.
