What brought you to the Metroparks
After working in the manufacturing industry for 10 years I wanted a change of atmosphere. I found the change I wanted when I came across an Administrative job posting for the Metroparks. I have always liked visiting the Metroparks and knew this would be a great job for me. I love the park system and believe in preserving our lands. I am very grateful for my position and enjoy going to work every day.
