Amy Finkbeiner, wife of Mayor Carty Finkbeiner, has landed a job as manager of volunteer services at Medical University of Ohio, at a salary of $40,000.
Mrs. Finkbeiner starts Thursday, a university spokesman said.
Mrs. Finkbeiner will report to hospital administration and will manage 170 to 200 active volunteers as well recruit new ones.
The job was advertised internally and externally.
A previous volunteer service coordinator was paid $31,605 but the job was upgraded to include training volunteers in customer service, the spokesman said.
Mrs. Finkbeiner worked for the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority from 1993 until last year, when she resigned to help her husband in his mayoral campaign.
