Career background/education?

I received my bachelor’s degree from Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kansas, where I played softball. After graduating, I moved back home to Arizona where I completed my Master of Business Administration. I worked in the mining industry and quickly realized I needed a career where I can help others and shifted into philanthropy. My finance experience at a large nonprofit organization as well as a private foundation have provided me the skillset needed to be successful at Philanthropy Ohio.  

Current city, what you like about it and your hometown?

I am originally from Willoughby, Ohio, however, I was raised in Arizona. I am currently in the process of relocating to the Columbus area after being gone for 40 years. I am most excited to experience the four seasons, instead of the two seasons “hot” and “hotter.”

What’s something people might not know about you?

I went to college on a softball scholarship.

What do you do outside of work?

Spend time with my family, engaging in outdoor activities, watching sporting events and wine
