Growing up in a small town in Northwest Ohio, I was fascinated with the Great Black Swamp along the Maumee River watershed. My high school Biology teacher would take us out into the parks and water ways to collect specimens, search for plants and animals.
I have a BSBA with a Specialization in Finance from Bowling Green State University. Since Graduating from BG, I have been in Banking for 30 years, with a short stint managing a Nursing Home, working in an Accounting Firm and being a mortgage broker. Currently I am a Vice President at WesBanco Bank, with my office in Beavercreek. I moved to Dayton in 1994 for a job at Bank One and have been in the Beavercreek and Dayton area working and living since then.
I have over 30 years of non-profit participation and Board experience to bring in to support BCWA. This has always been an interest for me and I have found a perfect partner with BCWA, to help grow, expand and protect the Wetlands.
