A business executive, attorney, mother, and lifelong resident, I bring valuable expertise to Worthington City Council. I have practiced law for over 20 years, both with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio Petroleum Marketers & Convenience Store Association. Most recently, I lead the statewide business association as its first-ever female president and CEO, and only its fifth leader in 100 years.
I know the ins and outs of small business, and I am well-versed in the workings of municipal government, from taxation and zoning, to business development and revenue, to negotiation and compromise. Most importantly, I understand for whom Council works, and that it’s time Council put residents’ interests first instead of their own or the interests of developers.
Leadership is not a difference maker. It’s the difference maker. Our city will advance only to the level of our leadership. We need decisive leaders—ones that avoid stagnation and vacillation. We need leaders who design solutions rather than let issues fester and create conflict.
Worthington is my hometown, and it’s the place I chose as single mother to raise my two children. Our community deserves more. Our voices deserve to be heard, and our viewpoints taken into account.
To me, the answer is clear. It’s time for a new era of leadership on Worthington City Council.
