    Contagious Energy With a Positive Attitude

    The Insurance Group President Stacy Segrist Kamphuis recognized the value of Chamber membership early on. “I have been part of the West Coast Chamber for close to 20 years,” she said. “As a young business, I knew that we needed to be a part of the big picture, and the Chamber gives you a short cut.”

    Stacy spoke highly of West Coast Leadership, pin-pointing it as her favorite Chamber program. “If your heart is in your community, becoming a trustee is the icing on the cake,” she said. “The class equips you with the bits of knowledge to become further involved in your own passions, or know just enough that you can turn to those that are passionate about that piece of the community that keeps us all running so smoothly.”

    A born cheerleader, the role of Ambassador was perfect for Stacy. “My mom and dad taught me that you should always invite everyone to the party. I love to be invited to a party,” she said. “I can’t think of anything more fun than going to parties, welcoming the new guy, learning about their business and taking a picture. It’s a dream role.”

    With her level of passion and enthusiasm, it’s easy to see why Stacy was voted to receive the Contagious Energy with a Positive Attitude award. “I turned 50 shades of red when I won; I was surprised,” she said. “To be appreciated for making the effort made me feel like a rock star.” The acknowledgement came at the same time as another set of awards for The Insurance Group. “We just won the Best of the Best for Insurance Agencies and 2nd place for Customer Service, so I am flying high right now,” she shared. “I feel like I’m living up to my nickname of ‘Queen,’ so it’s time to spread the cheer. You CAN be successful, happy and encourage others along the way!”
