Denise Imiola

President

I am a small-town Texas native and retired military veteran. In looking for a forever home, my husband, Brian, and I fell in love with Comanche and the surrounding area. We moved here in June of 2019 and have a ranch where we raise cattle and grow apricots and peaches. We enjoy giving back to our hometown by volunteering regularly. I am excited to be on the Chamber of Commerce Board and to promote our vibrant community and businesses! When not volunteering, we enjoy hiking, spending time with family, traveling, and enjoying life in the Comanche area.

Heather Combs

Board Member

I am a native Texan who moved to Comanche in 2019.  I have worked in real estate since 1997 and I am the owner of Always Realty, LLC.   In 2021, I opened a fitness studio, BeneFIT Studio – Yoga & Barre, in Comanche and I am loving every minute of meeting new people and helping people become the healthiest version of themselves.  When I am not working with real estate clients or sharing my love for yoga and barre you can find me on my farm enjoying my horses, cows, chickens, dogs, and cats!  I absolutely LOVE Comanche and showing off this wonderful town to my sons and grandchildren when they come to visit.
