1988, B.A. Sociology: I have been elected as the new President of the Nation's Capital Chapter of the Ohio Alumni Association. I have served on the OAA board for eight years, including the last six as the Sports Committee Chairman. I am excited to take on this new and challenging role. It is my hope to move this Chapter forward and continue to grow in the coming years. With the help of the other board members listed below, I think we can do great things and have a great time doing it.  I want this Chapter to be interactive, so if you have any ideas for events, suggestions for ways to make things better, or just to say hello, I am always available at I look forward to meeting many of you and hope I can do my best to serve this Chapter to the best of my ability.

2008 B.S. Meteorology: I am the Vice President of the Nation’s Capital Chapter. I’m a Washington D.C. area native and I currently reside in Germantown, MD. I recently served as Social Chair on the chapter board for 4 years and I look forward to working more with John and the alumni association in this new leadership role. Since we live in our Nation’s Capital, we have many exciting and interactive events to take advantage of in our own neighborhoods. Whether it’s getting together to visit the Smithsonian, or to “stand up and cheer” for the Bobcats at Penns Quarter, or going to see a live show at the Kennedy Center, the possibilities are endless. I look forward to meeting all of you and hearing your suggestions for chapter-hosted events.

2010 B.A. Political Science and 2012 Master of Public Administration: I am your Secretary of the Nation’s Capital Chapter so I look forward to engaging with all of you in-person and on social media!
