Week 3: Casually Cool

What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy spending time with my best friends, my sons. They keep me grounded and active. We enjoy sporting events, so you might find us at 5/3 Field on opening day, or traveling I-70 for the Bluejackets and continuing north to The Land for a Cavs game.

What do you find most rewarding about your job?

Making connections and making an impact is what I enjoy most about my job. As the spokesperson of the BBB, I can link consumers to trustworthy businesses. I can give a voice to those that have been victimized by scammers and unscrupulous business owners and inform, educate and advocate on behalf of Miami Valley businesses and consumers.

Week 1: First Impressions

Picture by Steve Paul Photography

What made you decide to pursue your current career or vocation? I am a Daytonian, born and raised in the backyard of innovation and a proud graduate of Dayton Public Schools. Innovators like John Patterson, Charles Kettering and the Wright Brothers made their impact on business and community life in the Miami Valley. Their innovative ideas, products and practices are imprinted in the fabric of the Dayton we live in today. I was particularly drawn to John Patterson’s civic conscience and his investment in employees and community that so impacted the quality of life for fellow Daytonians. My interest in Patterson’s ideas and theories led me to contemplate my own role in corporate and government responsibility resulting in a Master’s in Public Administration. I was intrigued by the idea of running a government like a business and its responsibility and accountability to its citizens. As President of the BBB, I am afforded the opportunity to play and work in a world that allows me to make a positive impact on the marketplace and I can do that with the businesses, governments and consumers of my hometown, Dayton.
