Board of Directors
As the 2019 President, I plan to continue the positive momentum of growing and improving the Star Chamber. My vision for 2019 is to increase the number of valuable services we offer to members, improve the behind-the-scenes operations to increase efficiency, rebrand and fine-tune the Chamber mission, and create a five-year plan for the future. I know my vision is ambitious but I am positive that our members will agree that these things are important and become more involved in the Chamber bringing with them their wide range of talents and skills.
I am passionate about Star’s business community and serving to make Star a better place to work, live and play. Besides serving on the Chamber Board of Directors, I also serve as the Chair for the Economic Development Committee. I serve on EDC with the purpose of helping to bring economic growth to our community. I also spend time as a hospice volunteer with Horizon Home Health and Hospice and serve on the COMPASS Public Participation Workgroup.
My family and I moved from Meridian to Star in 2015 at which time I immediately joined the Star Chamber of Commerce. I truly believe that being a Chamber member is a vital step to building strong relationships within the Star business community.
I grew up in the mining city of Gillette, Wyoming. In 1999, I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Professional and Technical Communication from Montana Tech in Butte, Montana. I have owned and operated Penrose Advertising since 2005, operating out of my home until 2018 at which time I opened a public office in Star. I enjoy my profession and being a business owner for many reasons but especially because every day brings new things.
My husband Rick and I have been married since 2001. I couldn’t be deeply involved in all of my volunteering endeavors without his support and am extremely grateful for him. We have a witty 14-year-old son who attends Star Middle School and a spunky 9-year-old daughter who attends Star Elementary. We also have a dog named Tucker who likes to think he is the center of our family.
When I’m not working, volunteering, or spending time with family and friends, you can find me roaming the outdoors, practicing yoga, learning new things and chatting with others. I truly look forward to helping businesses succeed through the Star Chamber of Commerce. Please reach out to me at any time!
Hi, I’m TJ Fruichantie, Vice President for the Star Chamber of Commerce. In October of 2000, I moved from a small town in Nevada to the beautiful State of Idaho. It was here that I met my wife. We have 4 amazing kids; two girls and two boys that keep us busy in our “spare” time.
I started Meticulous Man Services LLC, a local residential cleaning service, in 2011 and joined the Star Chamber of Commerce in 2014. Since then, I have helped the Chamber by donating my time to help with both the website and social media accounts. As a business owner, I understand the importance of having a good presence online.
As a husband, father, and business owner, I believe our work is meant to serve our life and not the other way around. Our business, the work we do, only has meaning and purpose when it allows us the ability to live focused on what matters most to us. Working towards something greater than ourselves and seeing what we do impact the lives of others, both today and tomorrow.
That’s why I’m excited to be part of the Star Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, working toward a better tomorrow by promoting business success and growth. As businesses succeed so does our families and our community.
