"The Brooklyn-Irish Hills Chamber of Commerce is the sponsor and host of some of the great events and promotions in the area, including the Independence Day Fireworks, All-Sports Spectacular and Taste of the Irish Hills. More importantly, the Chamber is how the local businesses and professionals can band together to be a strong force in community development and business retention in the area. Now more than ever, being a chamber member is so important. The Brooklyn-Irish Hills Chamber is a positive force in our local economy. From having a voice in the community development to networking opportunities, there are many membership benefits. We offer great group advertising rates, low cost (free) seminars and so much more. I encourage all local businesses and professionals to become a member of the Brooklyn-Irish Hills Chamber of Commerce, and be a part of our exciting future."

Annette Dupuie, Chair of the Board
"I am the owner of Sacred Touch Massage Therapy located on 11999 Brooklyn Road just south of Brooklyn and am the busy mother of two young girls. I have lived in the Brooklyn/Onsted area since my pre-school years and graduated from Onsted High School. I was very involved as an athletic trainer at OHS and went on to study at Northern Michigan University. I then transferred to the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy where I graduated in 2007. I have always been the one who wanted to care for others especially when they were hurting. This career has offered me that opportunity and gives me the chance to help people who are looking for pain relief that is available outside the medical field. I started my own business in 2006 which continues to assist and supplement in the wellness of the Brooklyn area. As a therapist I work with medical professionals by extending care to their patients as well. I continue to serve as a specialist in massage therapy; I am also a Yoga instructor and have an active role in the community through volunteer and fundraising events. I have organized and assisted in local charities such as Hospice Holiday 5K Run/Walk and have helped create the group known today as the 'The Irish Hills Young Professionals.' I have always been committed to any challenge I feel is a benefit to others. As a member of the chamber I continue to put all my efforts into the activities and meaning of caring for the community."

Ambassador Executive Committee Co-Chairperson
"On a whim in 2006 after my graduation from Eastern Michigan University, my husband and I took a Sunday drive, fell in love with a house at Clarklake, put an offer on it and moved in two months later.

"In 2007 I began working at Brooklyn Eye Center and immediately got involved with the Chamber of Commerce by attending Business After Hours events. These networking opportunities have allowed me to make great business and personal connections.

"In 2008 I was asked to become an ambassador for the Chamber and this year I was asked to serve as chairperson for the Executive Ambassador Committee. I truly believe that the Irish Hills is one of the most fabulous places in this country and I feel proud to serve in any way I can."

Kay Roumell
Ambassador Executive Committee Secretary
"I was born in Wyandotte, Michigan and made my first trip to Wamplers Lake before I was one year old. My grandmother had a cottage on the South Shore of Wamplers Lake and then gave each of her children a lot. My family built a cottage and I spent every summer there until I graduated from St. Patrick’s High School.

"I attended Eastern Michigan University. I earned a B.S. degree, a Masters in Reading, and a Specialist degree in Educational Leadership.

"I taught First Grade at Wyandotte Catholic, Third Grade at Gibraltar Public Schools, and then came to Onsted Community Schools. I was a second grade Teacher, Director of Title One and Principal of the Elementary School. After I retired, I went back to Onsted Community Schools as the Curriculum Director and NCA Coordinator for five years.

"Then I worked as an office assistant for my son, James, who had a mortgage company. I worked there for about five years until he closed the business. While working at Pinnacle Mortgage, I became a member of Oh These Irish Hills! and have been active in the 501 C 3 nonprofit organization as Secretary and Vice-President. Our mission is to restore and revitalize the Irish Hills. We are trying to accomplish this by beautifying the area and creating events that bring people to the Irish Hills.

"Since OTIH is also a member of the Chamber, I am active in the Chamber as a member of the Heart of the Lakes Marketing & Tourism Committee and Secretary for the Ambassadors Executive Committee.

"I have been married to Chuck Roumell since 1971. I have a son, James Roumell, a daughter-in-law, Tracy and they have two sons, Chad and Adam. I have a daughter, Erin Brys, who has a daughter, Caitlin and a son, Jonathan.

"My time is split between my family, friends and volunteering for the organizations that make a difference."

"Devils Lake and Vineyard Lake were two places I called home throughout my childhood. After graduating from Western Michigan University, I knew I wanted to make my way back to the Irish Hills area.

"I met my husband, Rob, and we decided to settle down in the area where we are raising our 2 beautiful daughters, Chloe and Lily. Upon deciding to start a family, we decided to open a preschool and daycare. I was able to use my degree in Elementary Education while having the opportunity to be with my own children at the same time.

"In 2014, our youngest, Lily, became very ill. We spent several weeks in the hospital and were faced with many difficult decisions; one of which was whether or not to close the preschool and daycare center. We made the decision to close the doors because family has always been most important, what changed was our concept of “time.” Time is something the majority of us, unintentionally, take for granted every day. During Lily’s illness, the concept of time and how we spent it took on a whole new meaning. As Lily began to improve and get back to her spunky-self, I knew I would eventually have to go back to work.

"Having a new appreciation for time, I realized how important it truly is to have a healthy work/life balance. I know how difficult it can be to find that balance. Too often our time is spent doing things we have to do rather than on things we want to do. I thought how nice it would be to delegate those types of tasks, the ones we don’t want to do. It was then that I started Simplified Living, a concierge service providing assistance to households and businesses in the Irish Hills and surrounding areas.

"I now have the flexibility back in my schedule so I don’t have to miss a softball game or dance recital. At the same time, I'm fortunate enough to run a business that supports my outlook on life. Simplified Living is committed to providing our customers with happier lives by preserving their time so they can spend it how they want. After all, time IS precious!"

"While growing up in Napoleon, I had a hard time understanding the reason my parents decided to settle down in the Irish Hills area. I had my sights set on getting out of town and heading to a "big city." I spent 4 years attending the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, filling my desire to feel apart of a larger community. Throughout that time, I spent many weekends back home. I felt peaceful when I would return and slowly came to the realization that I wanted to come back and plant my roots in this area. I started my career at Comerica Bank in 2008, while still attending college, and eventually worked my way up to Assistant Banking Center Manager in Brooklyn.

"My involvement in the Chamber of Commerce began with my membership in the Irish Hills Young Professionals. During my time as treasurer, I was able to reconnect with the community and see the Irish Hills with a fresh set of eyes. I have fallen back in love with this area and am excited to continue my involvement in this special place I call home."

"I grew up in the small farming community of Manchester, MI where my family instilled the value of coming together to care for the ones around you. Now living and working in the Brooklyn-Jackson area those values guide me daily by developing relationships with local business owners and patrons alike.

"In the early 90's, I found myself knee-deep in a self-lead education of website development. As the manager of an Ann Arbor law firm, one of my light responsibilities was to strengthen our online presence. It was a "fun" duty and one of my favorite functions of the position. The experience I gathered while being at the firm paved a path to my next journey.

"In 2007, I started a small bridal shop business in Brooklyn, MI from the ground up. As the owner/manager/marketing guru I knew it was extremely important to be exactly where my bridal audience was. I could not afford wasteful advertising spending. I learned everything I could about "defining audience" and "target marketing". This research has become invaluable as technology continues to change.

"During my ownership of the bridal shop I became more aware of the weight loss struggles of my clients, as well as the challenge to better care for myself as a busy professional. Since the sale of the bridal shop in 2013, I have spoken to many individuals about my self-taught journey of marketing, fitness, and nutrition.

"I continue to evolve individually through personal development courses, while working full-time for Walton Insurance Group as their Marketing Director, and I offer Virtual Personal Training fitness and nutrition programs."
