Angie is a small business owner, who grew up the oldest of five children in a farming family. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership and a Masters of Business Administration both from Wright State University.
Angie has a strong record of public and community service. She previously served as a Celina City Council member for 11 years. Currently, she serves as Mercer County Recorder, a position she’s held for the past 9 years.
After discovering her infant daughter was deaf, she became a strong advocate for the deaf and hard of hearing at both the state and national level. That experience has opened doors she never imagined. As a ‘mom-on-a-mission,’ she learned how to impact policy and make a difference in the lives of others. She is proud to have played a part in Ohio’s Universal Newborn Hearing Screening legislation. Her persistent and persuasive advocacy prompted the U.S. Department of Education to update its early invervention language in the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), ensuring that parents receive the full range of options for their deaf or hearing impaired children, including cochlear implants.
When the City of Celina was under an EPA fine and mandate to replace or retrofit the water treatment plant, Angie complied information and initiated a visit to Washington D.C. Again, her persuasive advocacy got the ears of Washington legislators, and Celina received a $750,000 federal line item for their water plant. Angie will take that same energy and enthusiasm to Columbus to work for West Central Ohio.
Angie is a licensed Realtor and has been involved in buying, selling, and managing real estate for more than 25 years. She is a former board member of the Ohio Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Ohio Housing Trust Fund Advisory Committee and is a current board member for West Ohio Community Action Partnership.
Angie is getting in the fight to protect our conservative values and our way of life, to ensure that the next generation has a bright future. She is committed to making a difference in the lives of others and with her children now grown, can devote her time and energy to being a watchdog in Columbus, representing and protecting the interests of the 84th district.
No one will work harder to represent the conservative values of West Central Ohio. Angie will defend our Second Amendment, promote fiscal responsibility, defend the life of the unborn, and fight for our personal liberties.
Angie and her husband, Mark, have been married for 30 years and have two adult children, and two grandchildren. They have been active members of New Life Christian Center for more than 30 years.
