I have been with MEORC since 2001 specializing in Quality Assurance and Process Management.  I have a very keen eye for detail, while understanding the importance of the big picture and maintaining a focus for the customers I serve. I have also worked for Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, Children Services and an Intermediate Care Facility.  In each vocation I have learned that communication is the key to success and supporting people in achieving their outcomes. In my spare time I write music, play guitar and all instruments and write stories. My daughter inspires me.  She has taken all the best of me and my lessons in teaching her and has become an outstanding athlete, student and person. My nephew, Brodyn lives every day with Nonketotic Hyperglyciniemia (NKH). He is our hero.

I have been with MEORC over 5 years. I provide support in the Business office. My 20 years experience comes from customer service, data entry and office support. One of my quirks is that I am a list maker and have to have things very organized. I have been married to Mike, who I met in high school, for the past 40 years. I have 3 adult children, 4 granddaughters and 1 grandson. My proudest accomplishment is a 60 mile walk in 3 days for breast cancer fund raising. I love the OSU Buckeyes and once went to Urban Meyer's football camp for women. I got my picture with him and the championship trophy. Some of my hobbies include baking, walking, crafting, golfing. I like to volunteer at my daughter’s school when time permits. She teaches 3rd grade. I enjoy my job at MEORC and the people I work with. It is gratifying knowing you are helping people with disabilities.

I started my career with MEORC January 2013, after working several years in higher education.  I was born and raised in Loudonville Ohio, where I raised both my kids who are now grown and living in Columbus. My free time includes watching OSU sports, working in my hosta beds, and running.  I started my 21st year of running, spending the past year doing all trail runs in Mohican State Park.  I will be participating in the Fuzzy Fandgo this fall, doing a 9 mile run which supports Camp Nuhop, a residential summer camp for children with learning disabilities and ASD (Autistics Spectrum Disorders) and attention deficit disorders as well as their outdoor education program.

I earned a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree from Mount Vernon Nazarene University; that has led me to have a career in banking, office management and revenue management. I have been involved in office and cash management careers for over 18 years.  There was something missing for me in these career paths, I wanted to be able to have a more direct impact on people’s lives.  That is how I came to be employed at MEORC. I was born and raised in Mount Vernon.  After living in Columbus and Cleveland for many years, I now live in Mount Vernon with Ian, my husband of 10 years and our 3 fur babies (our cats named Mamacita, Karma and Melvin).  When I am not at the office you will find me working on our old colonial style home, exploring areas in and around Ohio, traveling the world, cooking or cheering for all Cleveland team (especially the Indians).

I am a registered nurse with 24 years’ experience.  I worked 11 years in the open heart surgery unit at Aultman Hospital.  After I had my four children, I left the hospital to stay home with them full time. I utilized that time to further my education.  My passion has always been nutrition and healthy lifestyle education; therefore, I went back to school to become a Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant.  I worked for 3 years with a Holistic Practitioner giving seminars and consulting with and helping various individuals improve their eating and overall health habits.  After that practitioner moved out of state, in 2007, I began working full time at Tuscarawas County Board of DD providing direct care to individuals with developmental disabilities.  I worked there until I started at MEORC in 2012, giving me 9 years of experience in the DD field.  I currently serve on the state Health Advisory Committee in which we provide support and education for individuals who have intellectual, mental, or developmental disabilities and the nurses who serve them. I am inspired by the individuals that I come in contact with.  I love working with people and whether I am sharing my knowledge of nutrition or my knowledge of safe medication administration, I feel most satisfied when I have made a positive difference in someone’s life.

I have 20 years of experience in the DD field, from summer camp counselor to Medicaid Manager, I’ve almost done it all. I’ve worked in a large urban county and a small rural county. I’ve spent the last 9 years immersed in the waiver world working to help SSA’s help the people we serve create their best lives. I owe my whole career to the very first group of adults and kids with disabilities I worked with as a summer camp counselor in 1997. I took the job as something to do with my summer having no real idea what I was doing. I had always been the underdog, the loner, the weird kid in school and I felt a kindred spirit when I met another group of fun, funny, smart, caring human beings who also just wanted to be accepted for who they were, not for what everyone else thought they should be. In my spare time, my husband and I like to garden, watch subtitled movies and anime, visit the local farmers market and help make Sunday service at our church run smoothly. When I have time to myself, I like to knit and crochet, play roller derby, drink wine and/or cider and read sci-fi/fantasy fiction. I am inspired by good people doing good things for each other regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender. I am also inspired by the complex simplicity of nature and the universe.
