“My mission is to bring encouragement to those persons whose lives I touch, helping them to reach their potential professionally and recognize their destiny in Christ.”

Grew up in Harrisonburg, VA. Attended EMHS, then Rosedale Bible Institute before coming to EMU. Married Richard, her best friend, in 1985 after spending a year in Richmond, VA, and working at MCV hospital. Moved back to Harrisonburg where she has worked as a nurse at RMH. They have 3 adult children.
Some of her hobbies are reading, writing poetry, baking, sewing, piecing quilts or wall hangings, or walking/talking with a friend. She loves spring flowers, especially hyacinths. She also enjoys other cultures and traveling. To be a life-long learner is one of her priorities.
