What is something few know about you? 
A long time ago, I worked for five years as a groundskeeper at Crosby Gardens which is now Toledo Botanical Garden.

What brought you to Metroparks?
I was volunteering as a Master Gardener at TBG and thought, “I’d love to be a part of what’s happening here and throughout the Metropark District.

Your favorite park visited?
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Started going there in the early 1980’s when it was a relatively new National Park and have returned many times since. Lots of fond memories with family and friends in this beautiful place.
