Cindy Dixon – Office Manager/Transaction Coordinator
(513) 443-8008 Cindy@OhioTurnkey.com
Cindy came from a background of working directly for an upcoming CEO of Procter & Gamble to being a Customer Service Manager at Wal-Mart. We decided to hire her for a variety of reasons including the fact that if she can handle the diverse pressures and types of problems in those environments, then taking care of our problems should be easy! She currently drives 45 minutes to work every day and enjoys using that uninterrupted time to focus her thoughts and plans for the day. However, she does plans to move closer this summer to limit the nasty winter commute!
While she maintains a long distance friendship with a pilot who is most often in the air, she is perfectly happy staying rooted to the ground. She has a passion for motorcycles and even though she doesn’t currently own one, she rides often with others and plans to buy one in the near future. She has raised her family and has now found the time to pursue a passion in real estate. While her son is now older, they still spend a great deal of quality time together. She loves to read fantasy books that draw her into other worlds. She has volunteered at animal shelters and at the Cincinnati Zoo many years ago, as animals give her a great enjoyment. She has also done volunteer work in Senior Homes spending time and talking with people who do not have many visitors and organizing games and activities.
