Congratulations on the reappointment of three of our TourismOhio Advisory Board members! Brian Ross (Experience Columbus), Dan Young (Young’s Jersey Dairy) and Jodi Burroughs (Hocking Hills Canopy Tours/Wild Zipline Safari) have been reappointed by Governor Kasich for an additional three years on the Advisory Board.
In the last BuckeyeLine we highlighted Dan Young, so now take some time to get to know Jodi. She graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in business management. Her first job was in engineering where she designed and installed control systems for pulp and paper companies. She also has a background in IT sales before she caught the bug for Ohio outdoor recreation.
Hocking Hills Canopy Tours opened in April 2008 and became the first world-class canopy tour in the Midwest! Jodi, along with her sister Julianne, partnered with the Columbus Zoo in 2011 to open Wild Zipline Safari at The Wilds.
Jodi is very involved in Ohio’s tourism industry and currently sits on the Executive Board for the Ohio Travel Association in addition to her role on the TourismOhio Advisory Board. She also chairs the zipline sub-committee for the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Amusement Ride Safety Council.
Please feel free to join us for the next TourismOhio Advisory Board meeting on November 13 from 1-4 p.m. on the 19th floor of the Vern Riffe Building in downtown Columbus.
