I have been working at Ashland University since 2004; serving as the Graduate Assistant, Assistant Director of Facilities and have been in the position as Director of Recreational Services since May 2009.  My job responsibilities include facility rentals, membership, facility operations and equipment maintenance. I graduated from Ashland University with a Bachelor of Science in Recreation and a Master of Education in Sport Management. I reside in Medina and enjoy playing table tennis, running and spending time with my family.

I began my journey at Ashland University in the Fall of 2008 as an incoming freshman, working as a Lifeguard and earning my B.S. in Sport Management.  Through my 4 years I worked as a Lifeguard, Swim Instructor, Certification Instructor, and Facility Manager.  I returned to Ashland University and began my current position as the Assistant Director, Aquatics & Student Development in May of 2015.  In the time between, I spent two years as the Graduate Coordinator for Aquatics at the Rowan University Rec Center and one year as the Operations Coordinator for Clemson University's Campus Recreation Department.  My responsibilities consist of overseeing the areas of Climbing Wall, Customer Service, Equipment Checkout, Fitness Center, Lifeguards, Swim Instructors, Certification Instructors, and Facility Managers, as well as the coordination of our Learn to Swim program and safety certifications.  I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially waterskiing, snow skiing, hiking, camping, and participating in sports leagues.

I began working at Ashland University in August 2017.  I received my undergrad at UMASS Dartmouth and my masters at Gardner-Webb.  Previously, I was the Director of Inturmural Sports at Limestone College.  In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and powerlifting.  To this day I compete in the hammer competition.  I also enjoy eating food.  My responsibilities include overseeing the intramural, sport club, and group x programs as well as running community programs.  

I graduated from Ohio State University, Mansfield Campus.  I received my bachelors in Business Administration.  Through college I worked at Grandpa's Cheese Barn where I worked my way up and eventaully got into a business related position.  I started at the Ashland University Rec Center in fall 2016.  Some of my responsiblities include entering new memberships and managing the budget side of things.  I like to spend most of my time with my family.  They are a huge part of my life.  I also love staying fit and exercising.
