Colleen was born and raised in Cleveland. When she met her husband Michael, there was no debate about them starting and raising their own family in the Cleveland area. Together they have two children - Grace who is studying to be a nurse at the University of Cincinnati, and Robert who is a student at Bay Village High School. Colleen is passionate about leaving a legacy to her children, and wants to bring that passion to the Love Box program for Cleveland Angels.
Colleen has been working at a CLE manufacturing company for the past 20 years. She started out as a part-time accounting clerk, and is now working full time as the office/accounting manager. Her experience in accounting will be an asset to the CLEangels operations.
Colleen is hardly ever seen without a flower in her hair or a smile on her face. She is a glass half full kind of girl and always greets friends and family with a hug. Most summer evenings you will find Colleen enjoying a CLE sunset on Lake Erie, and most autumn Fridays you will find her in the stands of a football game as a proud bando mom. She always saves time for date night, family dinner, Sunday brunch and dinner with friends. Colleen enjoys bringing light and joy to someone's day and is eager to share her optimism.
Colleen's personal philosophy is a grateful heart is a happy heart.
