You could say competing and striving for success have been in my blood since before I could read. As a former college softball player from my days back at Kent State (just a few years ago) I have put my passion and work ethic into everything I do, including the practice of law. I keep my hands full and my days busy as a partner of Friedman & Rummell Co., L.P.A., a shareholder and real estate title agent of Metro Land Title Agency, Inc., and as the Chief Operating Officer of my family in Canfield, with my husband Chris, and our two wonderful kids, Kaitlyn and Andrew.
As an attorney, I enjoy working with our clients to address their needs and find solutions to their problems. When clients come to me for assistance or advice, the issue they are dealing with is typically the biggest and most important matter they have at that moment. My objective is to treat the needs of all of my clients equally and with the same amount of care and respect that they all deserve.
When I’m not busy solving the problems of my clients (or my kids), I volunteer time for organizations throughout our community for causes I am passionate about. I believe this helps provide those organizations with necessary perspectives, both from a legal standpoint and that of a business owner. I love being involved in the Youngstown Business and Professional Women’s Club, providing women in business with mentorship and education, as well as serving on the board of Meridian Healthcare, a drug and alcohol counseling center. I enjoy speaking for various groups throughout our community helping to educate people on estate planning and business topics (which coincidentally is how I was fortunate enough to be introduced to the RT12 group). I am also a member of the Canfield Swim & Tennis Club board (which is the only board my kids care about). I also still channel my love of softball (cue the song “Glory Days” in the background) into coaching my kids’ softball and baseball teams.
I am truly lucky to have found the RT12 group, whose members are all like-minded, driven, and want to help each other succeed both in business and life. I cannot wait to see what my involvement in the RT12 group brings.
