I grew up in Toledo and went to college at the Ohio State University (Go Bucks!). After graduating with a degree in chemical engineering, I made my way to Cincinnati. I have always found ways to volunteer wherever I live, so Give Back was a natural fit. I also volunteer with my therapy dog, visiting patients at a local hospital and reading with kids at the Mason library.
I was looking for a way to meet new people in Cincinnati. When I moved here, I knew almost no one. Give Back was a natural fit that combined a fun and easy way to meet like-minded people and to help make my new community better.
We have a unique model to volunteering. We are guilt-free, host a wide variety of events, and provide a social twist to our events. This means new members can come to as many or as few events as they want, we have an event for every interest, and you’re guaranteed to meet new people and have a good time at our events!
GBC is a unique organization in a lot of ways. From its guilt-free volunteering model, to the number and variety of events we put on, to how easy it is to get involved with leadership (join a committee!), to the fact that literally every event ends in an after party. There is something for everyone.
Young at Heart 2014.
We have a lot of neat ideas for new events being generated. I think we’re going to have a great year!
I was recently elected to public office as a trustee of Deerfield Township.
