The Annehurst Times (Online Edition)

Board Canidates

Please find the bio’s of the community members who are interested in serving on the Board

Andrew Page, Dad to Evelyn (5) and Henry (2) and Husband to Elizabeth. We moved to the neighborhood in fall 2022. We have 2 greyhounds (Dotty and Teddy) and we love riding around the neighborhood, using the playground at the school, and swimming in the pool. I received my MBA from OSU in 2019 and currently the Operations Manager for the department of Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics department at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. 

I have served on 2 board of Directors, Central Ohio Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (past) and Creative Play Center (current). I am experienced with managing and approving budgets and coordinating and leading events both large and small. I also helped guide these organizations through leadership changes during terms. I have a passion for serving on organizations that impact people’s daily lives and improving processes, operations, efficiency, and effectiveness in organizations. 

Tim Goggin – I have been a proud resident of Annehurst for 35 years. I have raised two children here and we are the proud grandparents of six. 

I retired three years ago after a career in Law Enforcement, then in the insurance industry and finally as a consultant. In the private sector I was a Project Director, and my last professional role was advising a large multi-national insurer on customer service operations. 

I have been involved in the pool off and on for most of my 35 years in Annehurst. I was the Commissioner of the NEW Swim League, which the Pirahna’s were a member. I worked very closely with the Board during my tenure with the Swim League. In the past I have helped set up the pool prior to its’ opening and also with closing the pool for the season. One of my favorite things to do is grilling for the pool party and I hope my schedule permits me to do it again this year. I have been involved in the greater Westerville community as a youth sports coach, board member of JFLW Football, Board member of Westerville Lacrosse Association and as a volunteer at WARM. I have been a Football, Swimming and Boys Lacrosse sport official for the last 30 years, officiating youth through college sports.

It is again time for me to give back to the community, and more importantly to the residents of this wonderful community. 

Erika Delisio I was born and raised in Annehurst, was an active member of the swim team and a lifeguard for many years. I attended Kent State University to receive my bachelor’s degree in Recreation, Tourism Management. After graduating, I worked for the City of Dublin as the Aquatics Program Coordinator running the swim lesson program, water fitness, and special events for their three pools. When my husband and I had our first child, we decided the best place to raise our children was Annehurst. We moved into our home on Ormsbee Ave in 2018 and have never looked back. 

I believe that I will be a great addition to the board with my previous knowledge and experience with pools and the programming. As a board member, I have several goals. 

  1. I would like to bring more transparency to the AVRA Board by better utilizing the website and social media 
  2. Continue and increase events for pool members and the AVRA community 
  3. Develop fundraising events throughout the year

As an avid Annehurst lover, I want to bring back the qualities of the pool and community that influenced my life so heavily and give my children the opportunity to make those same memories. Please consider voting for me for the 2024 AVRA Board. 

Craig Hennequant By way of introduction my name is Craig Hennequant, my wife Sarah and daughters (Annabelle “Bella” and Ava) live just a few houses from the Annehurst pool.  We moved into the community in 2016 and have been paying members of the pool since.  We have enjoyed having this amenity in our community, especially since it is so close to us.  We have enjoyed the summers with John and then Jen as pool managers in the past and now with Katy.  

I’ve been working in financial institution headquarters (JPMC & BNYM) for the past 16 years. I’m also a veteran of the USMC, have a healthcare related doctors degree, bachelor’s in premedical sciences and former CPR instructor.

When we moved to Annehurst 8 years ago we were not aware just how blessed we were to land here.  Now, as a member of the community and the pool, I look for opportunities to be more involved in what is shaping my daughters and my family’s lives.  The pool has been a staple venue in the area for many families for many years and I would love to be a part of the improvement and continuation of fond memories for many more to come.

My wife Chelsea (Hamons) Nichols and I are lifelong residents of Westerville. Chelsea attended Annehurst Elementary School over 25 years ago. Her and I moved to Annehurst with our two sons, Eli & Jonah, in Fall of 2015.

Owning my own company has given me appropriate experience to serve as an AVRA board member. My goal is to give back to my community. Annehurst is a desirable neighborhood, and I would like to see it continue to thrive. 

In Spring of 2019 I had been heavily involved in cleaning up the landscaping at the pool. I also served a two-year term on the AVRA board from Fall of 2019 – Fall of 2021. Most Recently I have served a two-year term from Summer 2022-current.

Our pool is a special asset to our neighborhood and its residents for so many reasons. One of which is that it is a fun and safe place for our kids to make long lasting memories with their friends over summer vacation.

The pool is not my only area of interest in wanting to see Annehurst continue to thrive. I believe there are other opportunities that I could assist with in implementing the goals and vision of AVRA and its residents. 

It is important for my generation to get involved and invest in our community to ensure the future of Annehurst and Westerville remains bright for the generation after us.

Thank you for your consideration,

Ben Nichols 

Sarah Hansford I’m Sarah Hansford, I live off of Spring Hollow with my husband, Jason, two kiddos, Gillian and Lochlan, and two dogs!

I work for a local oncology practice, where I am the pharmacy purchaser, and in my spare time there make chemotherapy treatments for my patients. I have a bachelors degree in chemistry, and am about halfway through getting my MBA-HCA.

In our spare time we love to attend Crew and Blue Jackets games and hop around Uptown. Our oldest, Gillian, plays travel hockey, so we are all over the area and surrounding states with her watching her play as well.

My husband and I grew up in Westerville, where we graduated from Westerville North in 2011. After I graduated from Ohio Dominican, my husband was stationed in Phoenix, AZ in the Air Force for 6 years. When moving back to Ohio post assignment, at the height of COVID, we ended up in Blacklick for two years, before eventually settling here in Annehurst. It was always our dream to raise our family in Westerville, and I’m so happy we get to settle down in this neighborhood!
