Introduction from Elizabeth Wright
My husband Jason and I live in Kettering with our three 'furry children'. I grew up in the Five Oaks and Quail Hollow neighborhoods in Dayton, and I'm very proud to be a 'native'. My parents have always been active in the community and I'm proud to continue in their footsteps at a homegrown non-profit organization. I graduated from Chaminade-Julienne High School in 1997 and earned my B.A. in history from Bowling Green State University in 2001. For the past eleven years I've been in the membership and marketing fields, where I have been fortunate enough to meet many of the community leaders who are passionate about making Dayton a great place to live. It is through these connections I hope to spread the word about Cityfolk and help it continue to grow and prosper. Stay tuned for some exciting new membership opportunities to celebrate our 30th anniversary!
Some fun facts about me:
RECORDINGS I'M LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW: Revolver (Remastered) by the Beatles, Florence and the Machine, The Black Keys, Simon and Garfunkel, Iggy Pop
LAST THREE BOOKS I'VE READ: Emma by Jane Austen, Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, and blogs on Dayton History Books Online.
FIRST CITYFOLK MEMORY: Seeing Natalie McMaster at one of the festivals...I was mesmerized.
WHAT I ENJOY MOST ABOUT CITYFOLK: It is uniquely Dayton, and there are so many things we do that people don't know about...I want to change that!
FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC EXPERIENCE: Radiohead concert, 2003
FAVORITE COMFORT FOOD: Authentic Mexican food, fettucine Alfredo, deep dish pizza, brownie sundaes
FAVORITE PASSTIMES: Live music, hiking, cooking, museums, American history
DREAM VACATION: I would love to have a month to tour Europe properly...meaning private jet, chauffeur, and plenty of fine dining experiences. But more realistically, an Alaskan cruise may be in our near future.
