Chris Schumacher sees education as a major tool in eliminating human trafficking in Central Ohio.
The owner of Schumacher & Associates, a financial advisory practice of Ameriprise Financial, and his wife, Tara, have taken innovative steps to help the victims of human trafficking said Jennifer Heller, director of development for Ohio State University's College of Social Work. Heller Nominated the business for a Corporate Caring Award.
The breadth of studies available at Ohio State helped Terry Etling discover his interests and find a career that matches his passions. Terry grew up on a family farm where his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were raised. He decided to follow the family tradition of raising cattle and Ohio State was the obvious choice for an animal science degree.
After discovering the array of options available to him, Terry soon learned that animal science was not the best fit. He decided to transfer to what was then the College of Commerce. Nearing graduation, he realized that he did not want to work in business either. The opportunity to take classes in anthropology, sociology, and psychology helped him realize that a degree in social welfare was a much better fit for his personal and career goals.
