What I like best about Northeast Ohio: Our community is packed with great people, places to eat and drink and expand your horizon. And who doesn’t love living in a place with four beautiful seasons?
You're most likely to see me around town at: The CLE Flea, West Side Market, University Circle, running through the Cleveland Metroparks, Costco, Cleveland Botanical Garden and Severance Hall.
On the weekends I love to: Spend time with my family, do a little shopping, go for a long run through the Metroparks and spend some quiet moments at home. When it’s warm out you’ll find me with a cold drink and a hot grill on my patio!
