Dr. Glenn Saltzman devotes all of his efforts to helping others make their good lives better.
Professionally, Dr. Saltzman holds a Ph.D. in Counseling from The Ohio State University, where he also earned his B.Sc. and M.A. He has held positions as a teacher and coach, Assistant State Supervisor of Guidance and Counseling, Chair and Professor of Counseling and Personnel Services at Kent State University and Director of Basic Medical Sciences and Professor of Behavioral Sciences at the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine. His career spans forty-three and one half years, nearly all as a licensed psychologist. He is the author, co-author or editor of nine textbooks, 17 monographs and numerous articles in national journals.
As a Professional Speaker/Consultant, Dr. Glenn, as he is known to his audiences, has spoken or consulted in every state except Maine, Delaware, Wyoming and Idaho (although he and Ruth have been to every state). He is a popular professional speaker/consultant and has spoken/consulted with over 500 business groups in the last twenty years. He has given over three hundred and fifty speeches/workshops to the National Grocers Association alone, and several thousand to other groups. He combines humor with his ability to explain difficult psychological principles in a practical and entertaining way.
As a Community Leader, Glenn, as he known to his friends, is very active. He has served as Lay Leader and Chair of the Administrative Board of his former church (but currently serves as a gardener and usher at his present church), as President of his Rotary Club, on many service organization boards and is active in many fund raising endeavors. He and his wife, Ruth, recently co-chaired the Robinson Memorial Hospital fund raising Gala, which netted over $105,000 for the Oncology Department. At the same time, they co-chaired the County Health Department Levy (which lost for the 26th consecutive time).
Personally, Glenn is proud of being a ten-gallon blood donor, having earned a commercial pilot’s license, and having served thirty-two years in the US Naval Reserve, earning the rank of Captain. He has hiked many challenging trails with friends, his favorite being the Grand Canyon. Glenn and his son, Jeff, recently canoed the entire Cuyahoga River (123 miles). Glenn and Ruth have taken their four grandsons on many trips, including two to Europe and three to the Western United States. Glenn enjoys hiking, golfing, gardening, exercising, working on his web site and exploring new adventures with Ruth and their family, which includes two sons (Jeff [Sally] and Jay), one daughter (Jill) and four grandsons (Daniel, Andrew, Connor and Glenn Austin).
Very Personally, Glenn is proudest of being married to Ruth, his wife of nearly fifty years. Ruth had a long career as a surgical, geriatric, intensive care and hospice nurse. Ruth is the most caring, sweet and beautiful person Glenn has ever known and many of their friends wonder why she married him. They are happy because they have so many friends and a family who loves them…all of whom are loved in return.
