POSITION: Civic Engagement Events Coordinator

Background:

Although I predominantly grew up in Dayton, Ohio, I have found a home in Cincinnati after living here for seven years. Currently, I work as a Training Coordinator and BLS Instructor for St. Elizabeth Physicians. In early 2018, I joined Women Helping Women in order to co-facilitate the amazing bar seminars they deliver around the Cincinnati area.
 
It felt amazing to be able to contribute to the community, so I also became a hospital advocate. A month later, I joined Big Brother Big Sister which has been an amazing experience. And, in the summer of 2018, I began to look for a young professional group to join and was drawn to Give Back Cincinnati–where I decided to become a part of the leadership team. I can’t wait to see what is in store for 2019!
 

Why I got involved with GBC:

Cincinnati is an amazing city and it feels great to engage with its community. Give Back Cincinnati stuck out to me because of the variety of events it provides. There is always something to do, the people are great, and it is so gratifying having so many opportunities to help out the city.

Why others should get involved:

Give Back Cincinnati is both financially and guilt-free, meaning that there is no pressure to come to events and each one is free of charge. Additionally, Give Back is comprised of a variety of committees designed to offer a large variety of community service events. I love that there is something for everyone!

What makes GBC unique:

Give Back Cincinnati is unique in that the demands are so minimal. There is no pressure to become a member, pay dues, or attend a certain number of events. This organization is relaxed, yet has an incredibly expansive network and accomplishes so much in the community.

First GBC event:

It was a happy hour event at Aster (my favorite bar!)

Favorite GBC event:

Judging Your Ballot. I have fun at all of the Give Back events; however, this event really stuck out. It was so refreshing seeing so many people take an interest in politics in a setting that was non-combative. The candidates were all incredibly friendly, informative, and truly cared about making Cincinnati a better city. I walked away that night knowing so much more than I had walking in.

What excites me about 2019:

I am beyond excited to be given the opportunity to work with others to make a strong and positive impact on the Cincinnati Community.

Fun Fact:

Most of my wardrobe happens to match my husky.
