Since my introduction to the public service workforce, it has been my goal to work for localized government, specifically public health.  It has been a longstanding ambition of mine to get back to my roots and serve a community that will contribute to the well-being of its citizens.  Growing up in Ashland Ohio, the values of community, respect, eithics, quality, and stewardship have been instilled in my core values.

You will find I am a dedicated and driven professional with a solid and varied educational foundation; which includes a M.B.A. in Public Administration and Policy.

I thrive in an atmosphere of challange and excitement where my skills and education will be put to task.  You will find I am a very dedicated and driven professional that has been commended by employers for a keen ability to manage, and the capability to prepare and transition employees to the next generation of goals.  I am able to grasp new tasks quickly while adjusting to the ever-changing environment we live in.

I am excited for the futrue Holmes County has given me, and the opportunity to raise my family in such a great community.  I seek to carry out the Mission of Holmes County General Health District by "Working with our community to protect and improve the health and environment of those who live, work, and play in Holmes County".
