On a Lighter Note

What are some causes you like to support? Do you volunteer anywhere?
I have volunteered as a mentor to 5th & 6th-grade boys at a Columbus City elementary school for the past three years. I focus on teaching the mentees life skills, character building lessons, and community consciousness. I’ve always been involved in mentoring youth in some capacity, and I continue to find it personally rewarding.

Do you root for any sports teams?
The Ohio State University Buckeyes. Go Bucks!

Is there an accomplishment that makes you proud?
I am proud of sending my four kids to college!
