Along my career journey I have served my communities in many ways.  Among those are:

  • president of the Ohio Newspaper Advertising Executives;
  • an advisor to a business fraternity at The Ohio State University and a member of the advisory council to the journalism department;
  • a mentor in the Columbus YMCA Leadership program;
  • member of the Newspaper Association of American Display Federation Board and chair of the Public Utilities Committee of NAA;
  • member of the Athens Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee;
  • Board of Directors of the Copperheads, a summer collegiate baseball league in Athens;
  • past member of both the Dublin Rotary, Downtown Columbus Rotary and Athens Rotary.

Our family hosted a Rotary German exchange student in 1999 and a Japanese exchange student in 2001.  I was also a participant in Leadership Athens.

While in Delaware, I have served as a board member for the Delaware Area Chamber of Commerce, United Way of Delaware County, and Community Action Organization of Delaware, Madison and Union Counties. I also volunteer regularly at Stratford Ecological Center and serve on their Development Council.
