“Since choosing Upper Arlington as my home eight years ago, I volunteered extensively both in our schools and throughout our local community. As a strong believer in applying all learning to real life experiences, I frequently give back to the community and country that has given so much to me. I honored our educators by assisting with teacher appreciation events and elevated the uniqueness of all UA students by leading diversity, equity and inclusion programs such as the High School’s hUmAn Connection Festival.”
