Describe yourself in three words
Wife, Mom, Friend

What motivates you in your work?
Meeting people who are doing the work of the angels in the neighborhoods of Cuyahoga County. We are agents of change and hope at the Cuyahoga Land Bank.

What is the best advice you ever received?
Life comes at you fast, expect the curve ball. And always, always be willing to bend and flex!

What is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?
I was an ‘80s girl! Big hair, fast cars and a heavy metal eight-track in the stereo. Things that I love: baseball, polka music, ethnic food and a great beer.

What’s playing in your car right now?  What show is #1 on your DVR?
WTAM 1100 on the radio. Believe it or not I only watch sports on TV; and my Netflix binge is Grey’s Anatomy.

What do you do for fun/hobbies?
I love to run the trails in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in all seasons of northeast Ohio.

What drew you to work at the Cuyahoga Land Bank?
The mission of the Land Bank and the enthusiasm of our leader, Gus Frangos!
