Meet the Chamber Staff
Loralei Gallaher-Hink is the Executive Director of Membership for the Ellwood City Area Chamber of Commerce and Secretary of Ellwood City Revitalization. She is a lifelong resident of the Ellwood City Area. She graduated from Riverside High School in 2008 and attended California University of Pennsylvania where she received a BA in History in 2013. In May of 2014 she married Nicholas Hink, who also grew up in Ellwood City. They settled in West Pittsburg, where they still live with their son Brixton.
From the Fall of 2014 until July of 2018, Loralei worked as the event planner for The Jacqueline House of Wilmington, which her mother-in-law bought and still owns and operates. She helped create and grow the events portion of The Jacqueline House, making it a successful and thriving events venue. This is where her love for event coordinating and community began.
Although she is not a resident of Ellwood City currently, her love for the town and surrounding areas has continued to grow over the years and she is in awe at what has been achieved by the Chamber, Ellwood City Revitalization, and businesses (both new and old). Her mother and father were born and raised in Ellwood and she is honored and excited for what the future holds for herself, the Chamber, and the community.
