As a native Clevelander, I grew up in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland and currently live in Cleveland Heights. My husband, Jeff, and I have two grown sons. One is married and lives on the west side of Cleveland and the other recently moved to North Carolina…and we are thrilled that we have a one-year-old granddaughter. We love dogs and have a 15-year-old rescue Tibetan Terrier.
I enjoy staying involved in our community, having served on the Board of Cleveland School of the Arts as well as Vocational Guidance Services. I am currently a sustaining member of the Sunbeam Board, the founding organization of what is now Vocational Guidance Services.
I am a huge fan of our cultural institutions and was responsible for creating and chairing an annual event for Holden Forests & Gardens which benefited the Green Corps urban-farming program for Cleveland teens. I continue to stay active there through fund-raising events. At the Cleveland Museum of Art I am a member of Women’s Council and Paintings and Drawings Group. As a lover of all things flowers and gardens I am member of The Garden Club of Cleveland. I have a passion for arranging flowers, classes and flower shows.
I am a member of two books clubs and enjoy learning what others are reading and being involved in meaningful discussions about the books we have read. I babysit our granddaughter whenever possible and fill the rest of my free time with cooking, traveling and fitness. I am a big supporter of organizations that offer services to those with Down Syndrome and Autism, such as Two Café Foundation, The Up Side of Downs of Northeast Ohio, and Milestones Autism Resources.
Having been with Executive Arrangements for 24 years I have enjoyed meeting so many people considering a move to Cleveland. Once they see all that Cleveland has to offer, they are hooked!
