I am a lifelong Kent resident, a 1975 alumus of Theodore Roosevelt High School and a 1979 alumnus of Kent State University, where I earned a B.A. in Theatre with a minor in Anthropology. I have been working at the Akron-Summit County Public Library in the Mobile Services Department since 1983 as a Library Assistant. I am a member of the Ohio Library Council, a professional group for library employees. I am a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent and have been since 1994. I've worked on numerous projects there, including beginning the church library, heading up the 140th anniversary celebration of our church's founding in 2006 and as of this writing I am the current chair of the Social Justice Committee. I am also a 10 year student of WuShu Long Form T'ai Chi, which I also teach. I am a staunch advocate for preservation of our older housing stock and historic preservation of our more significant homes and structures in Kent. I am also involved in the Kent Civil War Round Table, as history is one of my great passions in life. I am also a current member of the Kent Historical Society and maintain a strong interest in local history. I am also a longtime member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, a living history group that studies and re-creates the Middle Ages. So as you can tell, I am one very busy person with many, many interests!
