Valeri Collier Joins Chamber as Receptionist and Office Assistant

LAKE GEORGE, NY — Valeri Collier has joined the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & Convention and Visitors Bureau (LGRCC&CVB) as the receptionist and office assistant.

Collier has worked in hospitality for 9 years, most recently at the Lodges at Cresthaven. She joined the Chamber team in July 2021 after 20-year Receptionist and Office Assistant Sandy DeKleine retired.

In addition to regular office duties, Collier provides one-on-one assistance to travelers who call, email and visit the Main Office. In her first month, she assisted hundreds of phone calls from visitors helping them find information on what to do in the area as well as where to eat, shop and stay. She also works to ensure members are taking full advantage of their benefits, such as keeping brochures stocked at the main office and information up to date so the Chamber can connect its members with visitors.

“Over the past month Valeri has fit seamlessly into the position of receptionist and office assistant. She provides accurate and timely information to visitors with a friendly disposition. Her knowledge of the area combined with customer service skills and attention to detail make her a great fit for our organization,” LGRCC&CVB Executive Director Gina Mintzer said.

“One of my favorite things about working at the Chamber is that I get to help not only one business grow in the Lake George Region, but all of the businesses that are a part of our membership! I love being able to share how amazing our area is with people and what the Chamber can do for them,” Collier said.

Originally from North Creek, Collier began her hospitality career at Garnet Hill Lodge and Cafe Sarah. In her free time, she enjoys gardening. With her green thumb, she cares for more than 50 house plants as well as flowers and vegetable garden.
