I became the Executive Director in December 2011. I grew up in Columbus but spent a number of years living around the country. I graduated with a BS in Environmental Studies from the University of North Carolina at Asheville and with a MS in Ecology from the University of Florida. I have been working in the non-profit field since 1997 and was the former Executive Director of Keep Franklin County Beautiful, Inc. I also had a retail business in Grandview Heights for 4 years. I currently live in Upper Arlington with my husband and daughter.
Program Manager/Office Manager
I graduated from The Ohio State University with a BA in Spanish Linguistics and Arabic minor. Previously at Ohio State, I worked as a Program Assistant for a foreign language articulation assessment project that serves Ohio high schools. I have been a summer volunteer for Americorps in El Paso, Texas, and I enjoy teaching English. I am passionate about travel, so friends and I take bi-monthly outings across the USA ; my favorite trip so far is Carlsbad Caves in New Mexico. I look forward to being a part of this great organization.
