How long have you been a member of the Columbus Ski Club and why did you join?
I’ve been a member of the club for 3 years. I joined the club as a way to meet new people and forge lasting friendships in a social environment shortly after moving to Columbus.
What trips or activities had you led or been involved in?
I have not led any activities or trips yet but have been a vocal participant of the club’s soccer, softball, and tennis leagues/activities. This spring, I plan on organizing an axe throwing activity so that members can have a chance to experience the fun & excitement that is axe throwing.
Please tell us about yourself (personal/business)
) I’m currently the Facility Manager at Stars Indoor Sports, a 75,000 square foot indoor sports facility that runs various youth and adult sports leagues/tournaments, having been with the company for just under 4 years now. I have been a Certified Arena Operator (CAO) through the US Indoor Sports Association since 2012 and help with the administration of multiple youth soccer tournaments in the Columbus area and across the Midwest since 2008.
Why do you want to run for the Board?
If elected to the Board, I will bring my passion and energy to supportively encourage newer members of the club to participate and volunteer in leadership roles, which will benefit all members and club activities by strengthening the infrastructure of the club long term. I believe that my unique background of sports administration can benefit the club by encouraging best practices in decreasing the turnover of participants and recruitment of new members in all club activities and events.
