What are 3 words to describe what makes you successful in your role with Advance Ohio?

Simplify the process

What is your proudest moment at Advance Ohio?

Humbly I would have to say this award.

What is your source of daily motivation?

In the past I’ve worked for the News Herald, The Houston Chronicle and The Plain Dealer. I enjoy being part of the process and working for a media company.

What did you want to be when growing up?

When I was in junior high school I was very shy. I just wanted to drop out and be a waitress at Bob Evans. Seemed like a stress-free lifestyle and they have great breakfast. My perspective has changed a bit.

That’s easy. Pez. Cherry flavor Pez. No question about it.

What is top on your bucket list?

I run a pre-prohibition era cocktail blog ( and joined the United States Bartenders Guild as an enthusiast this year, so I think I’d like to sling some drinks behind a vintage bar at some point.
