Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District
Education: The Ohio State University, bachelor’s degree; Indiana University, master’s degree in public administration/ environmental science
Toughest Challenge: Balancing managing and micromanaging
Greatest Inspiration: People who help people in whatever form large or small, noticed or unnoticed — the selfless giving to others
How I Motivate Others: Show up, follow through on commitments, listen more than talk and practice humility
Best Advice: Provide services of value. The secret to life is showing up, and she who sets the agenda, controls the meeting.
What Keeps Me Up at Night: Neighbors losing connection to neighbors, and people not feeling welcome in public spaces. Living together with one another is essential to making the whole thing work, and we need to ensure all feel welcome.
