“My parents inspired me to dream BIG!I am one of nine, a life-long resident of Cleveland and Ohio’s 11th Congressional District. My father worked in Ohio’s steel mills, and my mother was a nurse.
My American Dream started on Cleveland’s Eastside, E. 92nd, and Hough. That dream took me around the world as I raised my loving family and pursued an education. It was hard work, but it paid off. Today, I want to help all our neighbors to live their American Dream!
I was educated in Cleveland Public Schools and after graduating from John Adams High School, I went on to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Economics, and Organizational Development from Pitzer College, one of the Claremont Colleges in California.
My late husband Larry, was a Marine Corps veteran, and an engineer with Lockheed Martin, which afforded us and our boys the opportunity to live abroad, experiencing Europe, the Middle East, and Northern and Western Africa.
While simultaneously working, and raising a family, I continued my education earning Master’s degrees in Adult Education (M.Ed.) from Cleveland State University and in Public Health (M.P.H.) from the Northeast Ohio Medical University.
I have always maintained a home in Cleveland, and have deep ties to the community which has provided so much for my family and me.
