How did you become involved with RMHC of NW Ohio? 
I have been aware and involved with Ronald McDonald House Charities for quite some times as my father has been involved in some capacity throughout his career. I wanted to join the the board to get my foot in the door with RMHC.


As a new board member for RMHC of NW Ohio, what do you hope to contribute or accomplish?
As a new board member, my goal is to help grow awareness of what RMHC is, the services they provide, and what they stand for. I have had very close friends of mine utilize RMHC and I have personally seen the impact that RMHC has.


How would you encourage someone to get involved with RMHC of NW Ohio?
I encourage people to get involved with RMHC through Round-Up. With my ten-store organization, we have the opportunity to support Ronald McDonald House Charities in many different ways, but our customers can make a difference by Rounding-Up their orders. My stores also collect aluminum pull tabs and bring them to RMHC, this helps support the pantry.


What do you love about RMHC of NW Ohio?
There are many great things about Ronald McDonald House Charities. The overall mission of helping families and providing children access to quality healthcare is something that stands out to me. Additionally, I love seeing the work that employees and volunteers put in to make sure that families are taken care of.


What does RMHC of NW Ohio mean to you?
RMHC means a lot to me as an owner/operator and board member. Although I do not have kids on my own, I have seen first-hand the impact RMHC brings to the Northwest Ohio community.
