I am Kristina Willoughby, an Account Executive with Schaffner Publications Incorporated (SPI), a communications company, providing current information for over 30 years. I oversee accounts for both The Beacon, a free weekly local newspaper for the general public and the North Coast Business Journal, a monthly publication that bridges the gap between Toledo, Cleveland and Columbus business worlds.
Born and raised in Port Clinton, Ohio, I bought a house in the same neighborhood I grew up in and my children attend the same schools that I did growing up. I love every part about living here, hence being mindful of the small business communities. We, on our own, are only one intricate part of this amazing Northern Central portion of Ohio but together there are infinite possibilities.
With all of the roadwork and construction that has been taking place this summer, we would like to extend a thank-you to everyone who has continued to support local businesses affected by construction!
