Columbus, Ohio - Denise Ransom has walked through a lot of buildings.

As a child, she followed her father Leon Ransom through the buildings he designed. Ransom was a well-known Columbus architect responsible for many local buildings, including the Christopher Inn, Ohio State University East Hospital and the Martin Luther King Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library.

Although her father died at age 42 when Ransom was 15, she remembers the lessons he taught her about building design. They are lessons she applies today to her business, Elite National Building Services, a commercial cleaning firm.
