Why do you live in the Columbus Region?

Columbus provides me all the excitement, convenience and opportunity of a world-class city, but still allows the space and affordability to raise a family and plant a garden.

Why do you work in economic development? 

I believe that every human’s highest purpose is to have a positive impact on the lives of others. I am tremendously grateful to have a vocation that is both challenging for me and beneficial to my community.
