Annie DePerro, Project Manager
I have loved calling Northeast Ohio my home since the 1990’s when I attended John Carroll University. I grew up in Clintonville, an urban, walkable neighborhood in the city of Columbus, just a short two-hour drive from my current residence. I’ve lived throughout Cleveland, Akron and Canton and I currently call the serene, quiet west Akron home. It’s filled with charming historical homes and surrounded by the Summit County Metroparks.
Fitness and a healthy lifestyle give me a way to connect to the broader Cleveland/Akron community. For newcomers, there are plenty of ways to be physically active here to help you get involved in the area. I was the coxswain for a rowing team in the Flats (still an active club today), in the early 2000’s I ran races including the Cleveland Half Marathon and the Akron Spring Classic and I took up tennis about ten years ago, which I still play recreationally at clubs across Akron and Cleveland. As a mom of two, I can be found cheering on my son at baseball games or having FaceTime with my college-age daughter who is away at school in North Carolina.
I love to read, hike, travel, explore, watch documentaries and binge-watch series on Netflix. I listen to podcasts during my frequent long drives all over Northeast Ohio. Fun fact, I also run the business office at Ohio’s oldest independent radio station, WDJQ Q92 and WDPN AM1310 in Alliance so I have a pretty wide pallet of musical genres that I enjoy. Working for EA is great for me because I get to be part of a team of amazing, supportive, encouraging co-workers who are the best in the world at attracting and welcoming newcomers to Cleveland/Akron.
