Columbus, oh, United States

Born and raised in Ohio, I am a huge fan of Columbus. . . and why not?

It's one of the greatest cities on the planet! After living in several different countries on multiple continents, I made my way back to Columbus to call it my home. Columbus may be the 15th largest city in the USA, but our many districts and neighborhoods make it feel like a personable, small town. I would love to learn about your interests and help customize a way to help you become part of our community.

Please contact me directly to discuss how I can customize your tour. I have much more flexibility in my schedule than what the calendar shows: contact me and we can discuss how to make your time in Columbus unique.

A little about me:
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Ohio State University with a degree in English and Theater and was awarded the Academic Excellence for my involvement on campus that helped created many opportunities for students and community members; I would be happy to do the same for you!

I am currently a Certified Tour Ambassador in Columbus and have tons of fantastic resources to educate you on this incredible city. I am also an Event Ambassador for the Columbus Young Professional Club, a member of the Columbus Songwriters Association, and an active actor in community theater. I am also an active volunteer for events throughout Columbus including several years as a VIP Motor Coach Ambassador for the Arnold Sports Classic Festival. I also joined the Tour Volunteer group at the Ohio State House. I always know what is going on around town and can help you fill your time here with tons of fun, even apart from my tours.

I spent a number of years designing and leading community service trips/tours in Central America and have a wealth of experience connecting my clients with local culture, adventure, history, nature, and adventure. I've led small group tours in Alaska, Hawaii, Central America, S. E. Asia, Europe, and all over the US. Columbus is my home though and I would love to share it with you.

I'm organized, professional, and lots of fun (often told that my tours involve many laughs). I will work with you to design the best tour for your group. I would love to work with solo travelers, tour buses, small groups, families, adults, you name it and we can make it happen!
