Karl G. (“Gerry”) Espeleta grew up in Hillsboro, a small town in Southwestern Ohio, and attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. It was here that he met his wife, Lucinda, a 1983 Northmont graduate. In 1987, Gerry completed his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Miami, and went on to get his graduate degree in Dentistry at The Ohio State University. Looking for a place to begin his dental practice, they decided to move back to Lucinda’s hometown in the Englewood area. He has been practicing dentistry in this area since 1991, where they have raised their 3 daughters, all Northmont graduates. He is a member of the local Chamber of Commerce and is currently a board member of the Dayton Dental Society. He actively supports community and school-sponsored activities and is enthusiastic about his involvement with the Northmont Board of Education.
