Rick has been an international aid worker in some of the most vulnerable places around the world. He joined the Peace Corps after college, working in Morocco for five years as a teacher and a health educator. After Rick earned a master’s degree in public health, he continued his international work in places like Cambodia, Congo, and Afghanistan.
While working back in the U.S. as a humanitarian advocate, Rick met his husband. After getting married in 2007, they adopted two beautiful girls. Because their marriage wasn’t recognized by the government, Rick joined the fight for civil rights and marriage equality. Now, Rick is driven to confront new threats, and to stand up for what’s right for the people in OH-15.
