Who are you?

I was born and raised in Cincinnati. I have an undergraduate and master’s degree in Finance and I just completed my Masters Certificate in Philanthropic Studies. I have been working for Duke Energy for 14 years. In my current role I help our low -income customers decrease their energy bills. I have been married for 13 years and we have 3 amazing children.

What excites you about being an Impact 100 Member?

I get excited when the letter of intent process begins. I enjoy serving on focus area committees and reading grant applications. I get inspired and energized learning about different nonprofits and their innovation programs and impactful work in the community.

Could you provide a brief description of your favorite Impact 100 moment, if you have one?

I have been taking my mom to the annual awards celebration for the past 5 years but she has yet to join. This past Christmas my dad surprised my mom with a membership. So my favorite Impact 100 moment will be getting to vote with her at the 2019 awards celebration.
