About

Abby Dalzell Allen BS ‘93, College of Human Ecology – Textiles and Clothing
I have worked in the apparel industry in various capacities since graduation. Currently I work for Nordstrom where I oversee product development and production for our private label business. I have lived in Seattle for 3 and a half years. I was a previous board member at the alumni association for South West Florida and am excited to be able to continue to support our school and alumni board here in Seattle.
Andrew Lee, 2009. Board member with emphasis on community service. I became a board member because I saw an opportunity to affect change in this community and plant the flag of Buckeye pride in Western Washington. Seattle is full of tOSU alumni looking for a little piece of Columbus out here and I want to help make that a reality. OSU fun fact: Kept a piece of sod from Ohio Stadium from the ‘06 Game victory alive in my apartment 2 years.
Chris Destro, ’93. As Communications and Marketing Chair, I want to ensure all Seattle area OSU Alumni are fully informed regarding social events, game watches, philanthropy opportunities, scholarship, networking events, and other get-together activities. Go Bucks!
Hi I’m Claudius Mbemba, a 2015 graduate. I am the Alumni chapter’s Young Buckeyes Chair and I create events to engage young buckeyes living in Seattle. I joined the board to help build a vibrant and thriving community for buckeyes, young and old, in Seattle. A fun fact about me is I played varsity football at Ohio State.
Dorinda Otto, ‘76. Board member, I have lived in the Seattle area for years and love being around fellow Buckeyes. We are a special breed! This club is a great way to stay connected and to show your Buckeye spirit. Fun fact: Three of my four siblings are also OSU grads.
Jackie Braidech ‘64, Retired Registered Nurse. I feel it is important to have a strong local chapter and I want to do my part in fostering Buckeyes to stay connected and benefit the community. My late husband comes from a long legacy of alums and I want to pay it forward.
Jamie Fletcher, BS 2002, Student Recruitment Chair
College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Science
As Student Recruitment Chair, the focus is to positively impact the future of Ohio State by helping to find, recruit and retain talented high school students in the Seattle area. I joined the Board to help send the best and brightest students to OSU!
My husband, Jason and 2 year old daughter, Charlotte moved to Seattle in June 2016. I am a Registered Nurse at the University of Washington Regional Heart Center.
Jason Fletcher, BS 2007, Board Member
I am originally from Cincinnati, but stayed in Columbus after graduating from OSU until we relocated to Seattle in June, 2016.
Fun Fact: Both my wife and I are OSU grads, but we didn’t meet until several years after we graduated. Now we are enjoying meeting other Buckeyes here in the Pacific Northwest!
Max Roseman, 2015: As Secretary, I want to help the Seattle club get organized and be efficient as we form and grow. I joined the board to see our community come together and most look forward to networking events.
Nate Bingman, 2008. I’m currently Vice President for the Seattle Alumni board, and am excited to see all of the involvement we now have! Being one of the furthest located chapters from Columbus, it’s even more important to build a strong community of alumni, and as the Seattle area growth continues to explode, I look forward to welcoming new and old alumni to Seattle!
Peter Fitzgerald BS ‘77. President
I’ve lived in the Northwest for 37 years, both in Alaska and Washington, and have been involved with the Seattle alumni club for almost 20 years. I love having the opportunity to serve Buckeye Nation, and the club is a great way to help local Buckeyes stay connected, advance their careers, and enjoy life here in the beautiful Northwest. Fun fact: on a visit to Rome, while sheltering from a thunderstorm in the cupola at the very top of St Peter’s Basilica, I found myself surrounded by the entire Ohio State synchronized swimming team. Small world!
Peter Glotfelty ‘16. Board Member
As a new alumnus of the university, I’m excited to bring the same energy found on campus to the alumni community all the way out here in Seattle.
Said Sariolghalam, BSBA 2007, MPA 2009, MHA 2010. As the Treasurer, I understand and value the resources that Ohio State makes available to its various local clubs and want to ensure that our resource allocation and expenditures are justified and helps meet the club’s visions of growth and that we are in good financial standing as a non-profit organization. Furthermore, I also hope to further energize and help spearhead efforts to encourage our local alumni to pay it forward to the university by donating to our local club’s scholarship fund. As a 3-time graduate, I am sure don’t have a shortage of buckeye spirit and love for buckeye nation! I am excited to be a part of the efforts to re-energize the buckeye community in the Pacific Northwest.
Stephen McConoughey, BS 2003, Scholarship Chair
I am excited to support future Buckeyes through our club’s annual scholarship. This award provides our group with the ability to support students from the Northwest as they make the long journey to OSU. Being surrounded by fellow Buckeyes striving to make a difference in the community has been a wonderful experience.
Susanna Cerasuolo BA ’94, M.Ed. ’95
I was born and raised in Ohio and have since lived in California, Boston, France, and now Seattle for 12 years. Here in Seattle I have a college consulting practice in which I help students decide which universities to apply to and guide them through the application process. Of course I put Ohio State on their lists! I am excited to serve on our alumni board in order to host great events to bring Seattle Buckeyes together.
Tom Hammer, 2010 BSBA/2013 MBA, General Board Member. I joined the board because, as a former member of the Student Alumni Council, I learned so much from interactions and mentorship from engaged alumni, and wanted a way to provide that same support in the Puget Sound region. In 2009, I carried the Illibuck rivalry trophy onto the field at the Ohio State v Illinois football game.
