Anjelo Pina

Business Development & Community Outreach Coordinator

I am originally from Toledo, Ohio, but have called Columbus home for almost 12 years. I love spending time catching up with friends and family and socializing in general. I am a proud dog parent to my mouthy yet very friendly and lovable Husky, Dexter. I have a big interest in being involved with my community, from hosting gatherings for welcoming new neighbors to participating in neighborhood cleanups. I come from a family of entrepreneurs and artists, so I have an appreciation for small businesses and a passion for supporting independent artists.

I’m one of those people who genuinely loves trying new things for the experience. Why just read about it when you can do it? My boyfriend Ben and I love to travel when we can. If I’m responsible for picking our destination and how we’ll be spending our trip, you can bet your money that it’ll be something active with nature views. There’s nothing quite like breathing in crisp air while breaking a sweat on a scenic hike in the mountains.

I have roots in healthcare and am a veteran of the Ohio Army National Guard. I’m excited to see how I can bring those personal and professional experiences to Buckeye Innovation in a way that brings value and contributes positively to the team.

I’m a lover of ’90s and early 2000s music and have been known to crush it at music trivia.
