Jackie and I are very excited to be back in Ohio. Jackie was born and raised around the Cincinnati area while I was born and raised on the west side of Cleveland. We are true Buckeyes OH-IO.
I have been a member of Zion since 1996 and I have been the office manager since 2001. I have 3 children, Andrew 28, Aimee 25, and Alex 20. My dog Zoey joined our family 3 years ago from a no-kill shelter in Louisville, KY. I was divorced 10 years ago and have always been thankful to those at Zion who gave me an opportunity to take on the job as office manager at a difficult time in my life. I thank all of those responsible.
I love antiquing, finding those little out of the way places to explore. Now that my kids are grown I have gotten back to reading books, anything from self-help to the Stephanie Plum novels! My passion is trying to make a better life for those individuals with Down Syndrome and disabilities. I am active in Special Olympics and sit on several boards in the community. I hope to do some traveling in the future. I have lived in Philadelphia, New York, Phoenix, Colorado Springs, Tulsa, Chicago, and of course Ohio. There is so much to see and do and my future plans are to continue seeing the USA and retire in Colorado.
