Why did you choose Topeka as the place to build your career?Topeka is full of folks who are committed to a singular vision of improving the community. I feel like in Topeka, I have found my place, and I can make a difference and leave my mark on the community.
Where do you see Topeka in 10 years?Over the eight years I have lived in Topeka, I have already seen marked changes, and I hope Topeka continues in those same directions. In the next 10 years, I hope downtown Topeka becomes a destination for Topekans and Northeast Kansans.
