Natalie R. Blue of Circleville recently was selected to serve on the Pickaway County Community Foundation’s Board of Directors. Blue is the chief executive officer for Clifton Family Farms headquartered on state Route 316 West, Orient.
A lifelong resident of Pickaway County and a graduate of Westfall High School, Blue began her career working for the Pickaway County Child Support Services before serving as the director of sales and marketing for a software development company in Dublin. After more than five years marketing software, Blue moved into the management of the family farm and its related enterprises.
An alumna of The Ohio State University, Blue has previously served as a board member for the Pickaway County Red Cross and Stepping Stones.
“I am excited about potentially being part of solving challenges that face our community,” Blue said. “I am especially interested in helping our community work through issues related to drugs, poverty, employment and discovering new ways to help the community prosper.”
“PCCF is most pleased that Natalie has accepted our invitation to serve on the board of directors,” said Dan Litzinger, chair of the foundation. “Like many communities, Pickaway County has a long list of priorities and concerns. At the same time, there is no lack of energy or commitment among the many organizations that work daily to improve lives, install beneficial programs and solve issues affecting people, businesses and the well-being of the county. To address those challenges, boards like ours need individuals like Natalie Blue, who believe in possibilities and are willing to seek the ways and means that lead to solutions.”
Blue’s three-year term on the PCCF Board began May 1. She and her husband, Jamie, have two daughters who attend Westfall Local Schools.
