“I am not ‘Stuck in Ohio’ rather I choose to be in Ohio, because I love the beauty of snow and I wouldn’t be able to ski without the snow! I also love the community here and being able to give back to others. I do like to get out of Ohio from time to time to travel the world, I’ve been to many different countries, some of my favorites are: Israel, Greece, and Italy.”
