I love Columbus because…

I love that Columbus is incredibly open, accessible and supportive. If you have an idea here and you’re willing to work for it, you can make close to anything happen.

We have a ridiculous amount of momentum because of this openness. Ideas grow here, which means the city has the ability to constantly be on the edge of providing new innovation, experiences and opportunities. We don’t stay stagnant as a city – we evolve, we grow, we change. Sometimes, that can be hard (growing pains are definitely a real thing), but I would have it no other way!

I believe young professionals are important to our city because…

Young professionals have a unique perspective and mindset. We have the passion, power and ambition to drive the innovation we see in our city – and we’re stepping up to do it through the creation of new experiences, businesses & more. It takes everyone to make a growing, vibrant, open, & smart city. Diversity in all areas promotes innovation, including age.
