OHSPRA Board of Directors

A message from the OHSPRA President

We wish our OHSPRA Board Secretary, Erika Konowalow, the best as she continues to recover from a health scare during our OHSPRA Spring Conference this year. Erika served the board for two years as secretary and was an incredibly valued member of our team. We respect her need to step back from her responsibilities with OHSPRA as she focuses on her health and her work at Pickaway Ross Career & Technology Center and we wish her all the best!

Please join OHSPRA in welcoming Audrey Holtzman to the board as I appointed her as our new secretary at the board meeting in August. 

Audrey Holtzman is in her first year as the Enrollment and Recruitment Specialist for the Parma City School District, where she is tasked with bringing back community, private, and charter school students. Prior to her appointment in Parma, Mrs. Holtzman spent seven years in the Euclid City Schools as the Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator. She specializes in media relations, social media management, community relations, event planning, and digital and print collateral design. Audrey has worked for FOX 8 News in Cleveland and 13abc in Toledo. Audrey will fill the remaining two years of Erika's term.
