Tina believes academic success arrives through an imaginative, inspired, and fun environment for children. She understands the importance of hands-on learning and how children are able to master concepts more readily when put into action. This belief led her to found Country Life Kids Camp in 2008. Established as a non-profit organization, Tina thought it important to have a mission to prepare our youth for the future by instilling in them character, values, leadership, and a moral compass by which to lead their lives.

Since then, Tina has been giving back and donating her time and talents through Country Life Kids Camp programming, and their new, expanded programs at, EDventurer’s Club -Online Club House of Learning. As Director of CLKC, leveraging her history as a collegiate athlete and as a professional in the corporate world, she now teaches and coaches young people to reach their fullest potential. Nothing makes her prouder than helping children understand the value of a positive attitude or influencing their character development through a game of basketball, volleyball, or soccer.

In addition to her time at CLKC, Tina also volunteers in the Medina community. Tina currently serves on the parish counsel at St. Francis Xavier Parish. She also has experience coaching 20 seasons with a variety of CYO sports. According to Kim Tuchek, St Francis Xavier CYO athletic director, "After designing a complete basketball program for children grades first through third, Tina then instructed our "Young Navigators" with some age-based skills and drills that emphasized the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship throughout. Tina's experience of the game, tremendous spirit and enjoyment in teaching children led to the success of this program. The children definitely enjoyed the camp, and the parents were equally overwhelmed and delighted with Tina and her program."

 

Tina graduated from Penn State University and Slippery Rock University magna cum laude. She lives in Medina with her husband, Bob, and son, Matthew.
