Born and raised in Alliance, Ohio but I have spent time away in a couple different cities and returned back to Cleveland in March of 2012. Why did you choose to be on the E!C board of directors? I made the decision to volunteer on the Engage! Cleveland Board because I wanted to give back to the community, and I felt that Engage would offer me the best opportunity to help other young professionals and businesses by helping to cultivate and retain the talent that exists in Cleveland. What is your top tip for young professionals in Cleveland? My tip for young professionals today is to develop your professional dream and surround yourself with colleagues and mentors that share your principles and will help you fulfill your dreams. What is your favorite thing about Cleveland? My favorite thing about Cleveland is the entrepreneurial spirit that our city offers. From the large businesses that operate here to the new start-ups, we are doing things every day to show others that Cleveland is a ‘mover and shaker’ city. What would you most like to see change/improve in Cleveland? The one thing that I would like to see continue to improve in Cleveland is the effect that will continue to happen when we keep more and more of our college graduates in the Cleveland area to impact our local economy.
