I obtained my Masters Degree in City and Regional Planning from The Ohio
State University. I am a Rural and Community Planner who is currently working
for the Office of Community Development in the Ohio Development Services
Agency. I am experienced with community development/outreach, public
participation, technical assistance, housing development, health planning,
working with underrepresented populations (the homeless and those dealing
with mental illness), and teaching at the university level. I also specialize
in qualitative and survey research methodologies.
