I have been the Smithville Village Solicitor since 2010.  After graduating from Smithville High School I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from John Carroll University and a law degree from The University of Akron School of Law.  I have taught law and business related classes at The University of Akron Wayne College and currently serve on the Boards of Directors of the Wayne County Community Foundation, Orrville Area Boys and Girls Club and Wayne County Volunteer Guardianship Association.  I have previously served on the Boards of the Orrville Public Library and Orrville Area Development Foundation.  

I am a partner in the Kropf Wagner Law Firm in Orrville and Rittman where I have worked as an attorney since 2001.  I also serve as the Orrville City Law Director.  I live in Baughman Township with my husband, John, and four children and am an active member of Orrville Christian Church.
