I am a lifelong Cleveland area resident. While I have moved away twice for work, I always come back home. During my many years here, I’ve worked on both sides of town and know the Greater Cleveland area quite well. I love Cleveland and love telling people about our world-class amenities and rich history. I work for a global technology company where, as part of my duties, I host a global monthly webinar series. On each episode, I share with the audience a fun fact about Cleveland and the many treasures we have to offer the world. It's my own little way of connecting the audience to my cherished hometown. I'm Cleveland born and bred and would love the opportunity to show newcomers why I hold this special place near and dear to my heart.
