Why do you live in the Columbus Region?

I was fortunate enough to be born and raised in the Columbus Region. I have yet to find the limits of what this region has to offer: world-class education, urban vibrancy balanced with suburban and rural appeal, unparalleled career growth opportunities, arts and entertainment, and an authentic sense of place filled with diverse, open and creative people. You can make this place what you want it to be.

Why do you work in economic development?

I’m passionate about the mission and purpose of the role of an economic developer and find the work to be equally stimulating, challenging and fulfilling.
