As Operations Coordinator my focus is on providing operational support to the OFSWCD board as well as representing the 88 SWCD's of Ohio. This role allows me the opportunity to coordinate state-wide events and conferences, assist with grant programs, outreach, advocacy and basic day to day operations.
The majority of my professional experience was at the Ohio House of Representatives where I served as a Legislative Aide. There I had the opportunity to staff various committees where I worked on local government, economic development and environmental issues. I was also responsible for legislative and budget issues, press releases and communications as well as train new staff. I have had several other opportunities which include real estate and inside sales for a business. I have also managed fundraising for political candidates, served as a substitute teacher, tutor and currently coach volleyball. I have a bachelors in Political Communications from Ohio University.
I am thankful for the opportunity to work with the 88 Soil and Water Conservation Districts in Ohio who have a passion for making their communities and Ohio a better place!
