How long have you lived in Cleveland?  My whole life, except for college! Why did you choose to be on the E!C board of directors?   I have a passion for Cleveland and a desire to be involved with the positive momentum that is helping to redefine Cleveland to be an even more amazing city.  The excitement around the city’s future is inspiring on so many levels. I want to help connect energized and motivated individuals, especially Young Professionals, to make our city an even better place to live, work and have fun! What is your top tip for young professionals in Cleveland?  You are your own brand; every conversation and decision you make has the potential to lead to your next chapter in life, so make the most of each opportunity.  Along those lines, I also am a firm believer of the slogan, “dress for where you want to be, rather than for where you are today.” What is your favorite thing about Cleveland?  Just one, that’s tough! I love that Cleveland always has something fun to do (entertainment, arts, sports, music, food, metroparks…and it’s all affordable!) but what I love the most are the people! What would you most like to see change/improve in Cleveland?  My hope is for more Clevelanders to realize how great the city is and for them to embrace all that the city has to offer.  Too often, Clevelanders are the ones putting the city down and we need to be doing just the opposite….sharing why Cleveland Rocks!
