I am from the GREAT state of Ohio, born in Marion, Ohio. During high school I was the accompanist for all choirs, ensembles and the orchestra. I also had my own piano studio on a music store for 4 years during my high school days. I received two 4 year scholarships, one to St. Louis Institute of Music and also Oberlin Conservatory of Music where I attended for 1 year. I felt God was leading me into nursing rather than music so I attended Lima Memorial School of Nursing in Ohio and nursed a year until our first child was born. Later I nursed part time and began my own piano studio in Concord. I met my husband Ike while at Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio and were married soon after. We have 4 children and 10 grandchildren and I love them all.

I have had the privelege of serving the youth of Epworth for close to 10 years. I love putting youth in the mission field and helping them find ways to love their neighbors simply by being aware of what's going on around them. Doing small things with a kind spirit can make all the difference in the world.
As far as education, I am a 1974 graduate of Miss Mary's kindergarten class at Main St. United Methodist Church in Kernersville, NC. I learned my shapes and ABCs and to say please and thank you and those things have served me better than any other education I pursued. Additionally, I hold a BA in English from UNC Charlotte with a minor in Communications. See? Kindergarten way more impressive.
I am quick-witted, chronically late and have way too many t-shirts.
