Ambassador Spotlight November Ambassador of the Month
Vicki Everett Vicki Everett of Juice Plus+ has been named Ambassador of the Month for the Greater Shelby Chamber. November was Vicki’s first month as an Ambassador and already she is a huge asset to our Chamber! Juice Plus+ has been a daily part of Vicki’s life for 10 healthy years. Five years ago she started her own Juice Plus+ franchise because knowing how it was benefiting her, she felt compelled to share with others. Juice Plus+ is a global business, reaching 20 countries, and is the most thoroughly researched nutritional brand name product in the world. If you are not consuming the USDA recommended 9 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, then Juice Plus+ is a solution. It includes 25 fruits, berries, vegetables and two grains in a capsule or soft chew. In her free time, Vicki spends time with her husband and two sons and enjoys Auburn football, gardening, birding, Bible Study and antiquing. For more information about Juice Plus+ call (205) 332-5255 or visit www.veverettjuiceplus.com. If you are interested in the Ambassador program, call April Stone at (205) 663-4542 or visit www.shelbychamber.org for more information.
