Every single day, northeast Florida becomes home to 85 new residents - and Aundra Wallace, the president of JAXUSA Partnership, might be the magnet who drew them here. As head of the Jacksonville Chamber’s economic development arm, Aundra makes a compelling case for new industry and investment to select Jacksonville and its region of seven counties as the best place to set up shop and call the city home. More than that, though, Aundra sees the potential for everyone, from your middle school student to your seasoned professional, to find a career path that ensures our economy doesn’t just thrive today, but continues to grow in the future. To Aundra, there’s no better goal than to see generations of Jacksonville’s residents gainfully employed here in the careers of their choice.
