What is your favorite Young Leaders event and why?
My favorite event is Fall Ball. It serves a great purpose and also a great networking event. Though I’ve only been to one so far, I can tell it’s an event that is building momentum. I’m excited for the next one!

Why did you get involved with Young Leaders and United Way?
I got involved with Young Leaders and United Way because I have seen their work first hand and what their efforts accomplish. Many programs and agencies benefit from the work they do. I hope with my experience to be an asset to the Cabinet and United Way of Greater Cleveland.

What is your favorite thing to do in Cleveland?
My favorite thing to do in Cleveland is explore. Though I was born and raised on the eastside of Cleveland, I’m always amazed at what hidden gems I find. From the Theater District to the Flats, from Ohio City to Coventry, from Lakewood to the Metroparks, from Downtown to Edgewater Park, and all the museums, galleries and food trucks in between! There’s so much to do, especially in the summer. It’s a great thing to see Cleveland now thriving in multiple aspects of living, working, and entertainment.
