POSITION: Alumni Coordinator
I grew up in Milford, OH and went to Michigan State University. After completing my degree in Social Relations and Policy in 2008, I moved back to Cincinnati. While I didn’t intend on staying, I caught the Cincinnati bug and have been here ever since. I worked at the Cincinnati Enquirer for a few years and currently work in Membership Development at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.
My first love was Membership Development for GBC! I served on the Membership Committee in 2010, Social/Fundraising Committee in 2011, and moved into the Membership Director role 2012-2013.
What GBC means to me:
Paint the Town: Price Hill was my first GBC event. I was amazed that a volunteer organization could coordinate an event so large and make such a tremendous impact in such a short period of time. I really appreciate that GBC has something for everyone and makes a serious effort to better our community while providing leadership opportunities.
Why others should get involved:
GBC provides opportunities to make a difference in the community, but also to meet some of the best people you will ever know. Some of my best friends are people I met through GBC and would never have met otherwise. We get to work hard and play hard together.
I am a HUGE Michigan State sports fan! Days after Tom Izzo lead the Spartans to the final game of the NCAA Tournament in 2009, I was with some of my Michigan family members in Chicago. As we walked down Michigan Avenue, we walked right past THE Tom Izzo. We quickly bombarded him with hugs and thanks for such an amazing season. He was nice enough to have several pictures taken with us and when we saw him again the next day, he gave us a wink and wave!
