Courtney Bass

Courtney Bass+Co

Nearly a decade of experience in and many wonderful people served, I'm blessed to work in real estate. I live in Oviedo with my teenage son and several pets, and help buyers and sellers throughout central Florida (sometimes beyond if the need exists) in residential resales, new construction, horse property, land and rental investments. Most of my business is now by referral or repeat clients, many of who have become friends. 

I'm ecstatic to have found this Christian Chamber (thank you Nicole Furniss-Party for a Purpose Events!) and look forward to meeting everyone, making new friends and being of service at every opportunity possible. 

God Bless!!

Palm Beach Atlantic University

I have worked in some type of educational facility most of my life - From Pre-School to College. I currently serve in the role of Admissions Counselor where I am privileged to assist others in fulfilling their dreams and their goals of higher education to advance their careers. I began my journey at Palm Beach Atlantic University, Orlando in 2014, when I walked through the doors to become a student and finish my bachelor's degree. It was a 25 year process and I succeeded in 2017. I began working for PBA in 2018 and then continued to pursue my Master's degree. I completed that degree during lock down in the pandemic. 


I now have the privilege of assisting others in fulfilling their passions and dreams as the Admissions Counselor at Palm Beach Atlantic University ~ Orlando. 


Hector Febres

Thrivent Financial - Apopka

I joined Thrivent in March 2021 and currently hold my FINRA securities licenses, 7 and 66, and licenses in life and health insurance. I have passion for serving clients. I make it my goal to earn the right to be called each client’s faithful financial advisor.


Before joining Thrivent as a financial advisor, I was a financial coach. I guided clients toward financial freedom by creating a clear strategy, including budgeting, emergency fund savings strategies, debt reduction strategies, and basic investment education.


In November 2020, I felt God calling me to do something more. I had just begun the application process for the Air Force Chaplaincy program when I felt God re-routing my path by prompting me to combine my passion for serving people with the foundation that I had already built as a financial coach.


I am happily married to Audrey Febres. We have a blended family with four children: two girls, Emma and Esther, and two boys, Jayden and Jordan.


I have built my practice on Proverbs 11:14. As such, I frequently partner with veteran financial advisors to help ensure each client is presented with options that suit their goals and vision.

Aimee Lloyd MBA

The Aimee Advantage

I am one of the few Native Floridians who was born and raised in Winter Park, Florida, and have continued to reside here for 43 years. Loving the small-town feel of beautiful Winter Park and the amazing opportunities in Central Florida, I decided to raise my own family here, including three sons, who are 11, 8, and 2 years old. I graduated from Rollins College with an undergraduate degree in Sociology and Psychology in 1999 and earned my MBA in Marketing and Management from Crummer Graduate School of Business in 2001. I met the love of my life, Robby, when I was 8 years old at Sunday School, and after almost 30 years of friendship we got married in 2017.

I utilized my marketing degree and expertise by partnering with local Financial Planners and Attorneys to identify their ideal clients while building their referral network. For over 20 years, I’ve helped business leaders run their companies in a more profitable manner by creating strategic branding and marketing initiatives. I started my own company, The Aimee Advantage, in 2019 with the goal of optimizing my time with my family while continuing my relationship-building skills by acting as a consultant to business owners, who need marketing guidance but don’t have the budget or ability to hire a full-time in-house Marketing Director. Running my own company allows me the freedom to partner with a select group of elite clients whose values and goals align with mine. I am passionate about promoting businesses who care deeply about their clients and provide excellent service without only focusing on financial gain but improving our community and their clients’ quality of life.

In my spare time, I volunteer with The Finley Project, whose mission is to help grieving mothers who have lost infants by providing a 7-part holistic healing program. After my daughter, Kaitlyn, passed away in October of 2012, I wanted to cherish her memory by giving back to an organization who helped moms by providing funeral preparation, grocery shopping, house cleaning, and most importantly mental health counseling directly following the most traumatic type of loss. I am blessed to sit on the Board of Directors for this nonprofit and work with Noelle Moore, Founder of The Finley Project, to create awareness about infant loss while raising community support. We are always looking for donations of time, talent, and treasure. It costs approximately $1,500 to support one mother and provide all our services to her over a 6-month timeframe. We are in desperate need, more than ever, for all types of support. We don’t want to ever turn a mom away when she is experiencing the most unimaginable type of grief.

Sondancer Virtual Services

Hi there!

I’m Maribeth Moore.  I am a virtual assistant (and former executive assistant, marketing assistant, and organizational freak). I am also a proud wife and dog lover (I have three big puppers)!

I decided to get back in the game and quickly found that I am “overqualified” for the jobs that are available. I also like being able to work from anywhere. This is when I realized that I needed to go out on my own, and here I am.

My tag line is “My mission is to help YOU succeed!” and I mean it.  Entrepreneurs/Creatives have big visions for their businesses but lack the time to handle all the small details that bring their vision to life. Here at Sondancer Virtual Services, I give you back your time by organizing those ideas and visions into small achievable action steps so that you have less stress, more clients, and more profit. Let me take on those things that you have been trying to get around to doing, but just haven’t had the time

Dawn Sipley

Sipley The Best
Co-Chair

With nearly 20 years in HR, nine of those in business ownership, Dawn understands the pressures of entrepreneurship. She began her professional career after graduating from UCF with her business degree in 2004. Since then, she has supported hundreds of companies in Central Florida with their hiring and firing needs either as a corporate recruiter, staffing company, or consultant. It was during those years in staffing that the concept of Sipley The Best was born. Instead of the agency experience where they simply do the grunt work for you, STB targets companies that truly care about the culture of the company, dedicated to attracting diverse but like-minded talent, and while choosing to value the team they already have in place. Dawn also has a passion for public speaking and educating both job seekers and employers about best practices in the world of HR.

Dawn is also married to Jason Sipley, her high school prom date living in Sanford with their two children Tawn and Bray. Both Dawn and Jason have deep roots in Sanford and Central Florida. Dawn's great great grandfather, Henry S. Chubb, was 2nd mayor of Winter Park while Jason's grandfather Hugh Carlton was the Principal for Sanford Middle for over a decade.

As a family, Team Sipley enjoys the outdoors through paddle boarding, kayaking, camping, fishing, hunting, oystering, scalloping, foraging, and minimalist hiking. They are also members of Action Church in Sanford, where each of them serve. Dawn also serves the Central Florida Christian Chamber of Commerce as the Ambassador Co-Chair and as a Board of Directors for Act to Act. Through these 3 organizations and a fair amount of speaking events, Dawn is able to serve her community nearly 500 hours annually, while still running a successful HR Firm.
