Born and raised in Delaware, Ohio, Alaina Shearer graduated from Ohio University with a degree in broadcast journalism. She went on to win two Associated Press awards as a radio reporter and news anchor for WTVN and WNCI. After fleeing an abusive relationship, becoming a single mom and nearly losing everything Alaina rebuilt her career by learning digital and tech. In the span of five years she climbed up from making $8.00 an hour to growing her small business to nearly $2 million per year in revenue. And in 2016, Alaina created a national network for women in digital and tech where she fought fearlessly for equal pay and opportunity. Today, she is ready to pay it forward and join her neighbors to reclaim their power by flipping Ohio’s 12th Congressional District. Alaina was born in Delaware, Ohio where her father Dr. Raymond Shearer had a small family practice and where her mother, Valerie, had a retail shop on Sandusky Street. Alaina and her husband Seth, are raising four children, Lily, Benjamin, Cohen, and Foster on a farm house built in 1807 in Liberty Township in Delaware County.
