I am a native of Youngstown, Ohio. Married to Jonathan Chamberlain with a daughter, Charlotte. I moved to Columbus in 1992 to attend The Ohio State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, and Master of Architecture. Fundamental experience includes residential, commercial tenant improvement, educational facilities, and medical office space with emphasis in Building Code and zoning & design and planning. I am currently self-employed as a Consultant.
My community service began in 2008 as Coordinator of the Cedar Run Block Watch, and later the Cedar Run Civic Association. Currently I am a board member for the East Columbus Business Association. I am the Co-Creator and Chair of Far East Area Commission and currently sit on the Advisory Board of the Greater Eastside Coalition (GEC).
I grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio and joined the Air Force in 1999. I left the AF a disabled veteran and moved back to Ohio from Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. I have worked as a transcriber for an insurance adjusting firm and a BMV clerk, and I am the creator and Coordinator for the Tussing Block Watch. I have served on the planning committee for the Neighborhood Best Practices Conference, as a member of the Far East Area Commission Task Force, and on the Coalition for a Nonviolent Columbus. I spend much of my time volunteering as a Girl Scout Troop Leader, a trained CERT member, a mentor with Children’s Services, with the Firefighters 4 Kids Toy Drive, with Friends 4 Life Animal Haven Rescue, assisting with wild animal rescue and rehabilitation, and as the coordinator for the Peeps 4 Pumpkin Search Group. I am also an alumni member of the Columbus Citizen’s Police Academy and Save A Warrior. In 2011 I was awarded both the Jefferson Award for my leadership of the Tussing Block Watch and the Columbus Police Department’s Meritorious Pubic Service Award for coordinating the 2011 National Night Out Kick Off for the City of Columbus, and in 2016 I was awarded the Pickerington Education Association's Friend of Education Award for my volunteer work with the Pickerington School District. When I'm not busy with community work, I love to travel with my family, kayak, snorkel, hike, dig for crystals in Arkansas, and visit our state and national parks.
