Adult Member Spotlight

Meet an Exceptional Member from One of Our Programs

Leadership Toledo’s many accomplishments are only possible through the dedication and hard work of its members. Once each quarter, we spotlight a former program member so you can get to know them a little better – their life outside Leadership Toledo, their goals, their thoughts, and what they've learned from their time in our programs.

How and when have you been involved with Leadership Toledo?

I am a class of 2020 graduate and proud supporter of Leadership Toledo. 

What was your favorite experience or takeaway from your involvement?

The first day of the LT program with the tour and history of Toledo was my favorite experience. Throughout the whole program I learned how to identify and focus on my strengths and how to work as a team. Learning about all the needs in our community really energized me to get more involved. 

How do you personally define leadership?

Leadership is helping others to see their true potential and helping to motivate them to make the biggest impact in every aspect of their life. 

What strategies or resources do you find useful in order to continue your leadership development?

Never stop learning! I love to talk to people and learn from their experiences, view points, and how they lead in their professional and community service rolls. 

How do you stay active in your community?

After my Leadership Toledo group project with Maumee Valley Habitat For Humanity, I joined the board and enjoy volunteering. 

What's new since you first became involved with Leadership Toledo?

Since graduating from the 2020 LT class, I have joined the MVHFH board and expanded my role at work to be Director of Engineering and Operations at The Andersons.
