I was raised in Toledo and enjoyed all of the benefits of growing up in a community with a pool. I learned to swim at the Toledo Pool, was on the swim team, and enjoyed many hours of play there. The pool was an important part of my growing up. I have recently moved back to Toledo to raise our three young daughters in my favorite town. They are learning to swim at Toledo Pool too. I appreciate the pool even more as a parent. I recognize that while I was learning and playing in the pool, Toledo citizens were supporting it. I want the chance to support and help guide this wonderful asset for the benefit of all. I want to make the pool more available and accessible by bringing the perspective of a young family with busy schedules and lots of energy. I have a clear vision to better serve our population and increase pool use while serving those who already use and know its value. Public spaces turn towns into communities. The more we meet, interact, and play the more we care and support each other. Whether we are in the water or watching from the stands, we talk, laugh, and create strong bonds. We benefit from every public space and activity in Toledo, but the pool is unique in its ability to provide life-saving skills, exercise, entertainment, and camaraderie for every age all in one place.
I am a lifelong Toledo community member and have been involved with the swimming pool as a recreational and swimming lesson participant, summer swim team and high school swim team member, pool maintenance worker, swimming lesson teacher and lifeguard.
The swimming pool provides lifesaving skills to our communities, provides recreation for our children and families, gives people a lifelong opportunity to maintain health and fitness, and contributes fantastically to the livability of our community. My goals on the Board are to expand access and programming for our community, ensuring that the pool’s hours are convenient, and programming is offered at times that work best for the families we serve.
As the Secretary at Toledo Jr/Sr High School for many years, I learned the intricacies of public budgeting. As a volunteer on the School’s Site Council, I learned the importance of ensuring that the community’s voice and priorities are incorporated into our government services.
