Girls on the Run of Stark County is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. GOTR Stark was officially operated out of my home office from June 2013 to March 21, 2017. Prior to that, my garage and basement served as storage space for all GOTR 5k and program supplies.
As Council Director, with only a part-timer to assist me with day-to-day responsibilities, I served as designer, web master, photographer, marketing director, editor, proofreader, human resources coordinator, accountant, and much more. I could list all of my responsibilities here, but I took on this role because I was passionate for our mission, not because it was a career goal. These are the responsibilities that reflect my core skillset and the ones that I hope to continue to use and develop in the future:
After helping to found GOTR Stark, I took on the role of Program Director on a volunteer basis from August 2012 to July 2013. I was then hired as the first full-time staff person on July 1, 2013 and the headquarters were moved to my home office. My duties included:
In January 2008, I moved to North Canton, Ohio and began working remotely for Solution Tree Press.

Various courses completed 2009 to 2017 (list available upon request)
