Thoughts on Women in the Industry

What makes you most passionate about the industry?
The people. For me, this industry is family…literally. My parents met at our regional theme park, Kings Island.  I grew up in the industry because of my dad, and then joined JRA upon graduating. I started my career with a passion for the industry because it was in my blood, but I had no idea how much my passion would grow once getting immersed. The people that I have met along the way have become my extended family. No matter where I am in the world, I feel at home, because there is always someone close by.
