AMANDA ADELSBERGER – M.S.

I was born in West Virginia and soon after moved to Westerville, Ohio where I was raised and attended school. After graduating from Westerville South I went to Franklin University where I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in 2012. I continued my education with Franklin University where I completed my Masters of Business Administration in 2017. I started working for Chase in January 2013 in Wealth Management and currently still work to actively managed portfolios and a team of 15 associates. When I am not working, I enjoy working out at Orange Theory Fitness, traveling and spending time with my husband, Trevor and our very spoiled cat Wrigley at our home in Hilliard, Ohio.

JODY DZURANIN – B.S.

I grew up in Worthington and graduated from the Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I live in the Hayden Run area of Columbus (north edge of Hilliard). I worked in the Financial Industry for 15 years where I became a technical trainer. This experience led to work as a substitute teacher in the Hilliard and Dublin School Districts. I have worked as a Driver’s Education Instructor and Bicycle advocate. My past community service was as a math mentor in the Village to Child program and a success coach in the Future Possibilities program. In my free time, I like to explore outdoors which fosters curiosity and creativity. Each June, my husband and I participate in the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure, a one-week bicycle-camping tour through peaceful countryside featuring stops at interesting historical destinations. I am curious, what will WE be learning together?

I am a native Ohioan, born and raised in Cleveland. I received my bachelor’s degree from Ohio University in 2015 in Classics and World Religions with minors in History and Anthropology. I am an archaeologist by trade and spent a year in the field before returning to school in 2016 to pursue my master’s degree in Anthropology at Ohio State University. After I complete my master’s degree I intend to continue at OSU to obtain my Ph.D. I love learning and am passionate about what I do. My goal in my future career and as an educator is to help students find their own passion. In my free time, I enjoy reading, being outdoors, spending time with my husband, and playing with my puppy, Zelda.


ANNA KELLEY – B.A.
All Subjects – Elementary and Middle School 
I was born and raised in Dublin, Ohio. I attended Ohio University and received my B.A in Political Science. After graduation I decided I needed a change and moved to Florida where I began teaching. I loved teaching, but missed Ohio so I enrolled in the Bachelors Plus program at Ashland University. My focus was middle school education (grades 4-9). I spent 10 years working in Special Education in Dublin Schools before I left to stay home with my three beautiful little girls. I love tutoring because it allows me to work one-on-one with students and it is so satisfying watching students connect to and understand what they are learning. In my free time I like to bake, read and go on adventures with my family.
