I spent most of my professional career with the Montgomery County Public Health Department. I was in the Montgomery county government for 19 years, the last 7 years as a Division Director of Special Populations. As Division Director, I supervised the Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (BCMH), the Center for Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Services (CADAS), and Women, Infant and Children (WIC). I also wrote grants for Public Health, and was one of two in the State of Ohio, who received the Unintentional Drug Overdose Grant. This grant worked with community partners establishing a multi-agency collation to address the reasons for the high rate of overdoses in Montgomery County. It was my time spent with Wright State University that gave me the idea that I would like to start a career in higher education.
I was hired at the University of Cincinnati shortly after leaving Public Health. As Program Manager at CET&L, I developed the center’s budgets and monitored its expenditures. I worked with faculty in processing their faculty development awards after they successfully completed their training workshops with CET&L. I made sure the office was running smoothly by making sure office staff and those who we served, had their necessary supplies and support.
I love scrape booking with my friends and daughter. We spend weekends together making family albums and memories. I also love gardening and traveling with my husband. I am a member of the Dayton Opera Guild, and volunteer with fundraising activities in order to bring opera to new audiences. I also volunteer in a teen mom with tots program in Dayton. I mentor two young ladies who are trying to make a good life for their children.
