Christine King, President of Your Best Fit Inc. was recently appointed to serve on the Board of Directors for the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. “I’ve been doing business in Delray Beach for 16 years and I’m honored to serve on this board. Our business community is experiencing change and it is with great pleasure that I am able to help the chamber work through these transitions for the betterment of our local businesses.” After a horrific accident Ms. King broke her back and was paralyzed from the waist down in 1996.
