Number of years served on PCBDD Board:  3 Years

Tell Us About Yourself:

I am a graduate of Ohio University with a degree in Elementary Education with a concentrated area in special education. I have lived in Perry County for nine years with my husband Walter. We previously resided in Columbus for over twenty years and chose to return to the country living that we both prefer. We have two grown sons and four grandchildren. One of our grandsons currently lives with us and attends Sheridan High School. I started my career with the Bellaire Ohio City Schools and moved into adult education by directing many CETA and JTPA programs in Delaware, Muskingum, and Franklin. I worked with persons with multiple disabilities at Goodwill Columbus, coordinating services with private employers. I served a few years as a Human Resources Manager before taking a position with Zane State College. For seven years as the Associate Dean, I oversaw the functions of a satellite campus in Cambridge, Ohio. In this position, I also represented the Governor’s office for ten counties coordinating workforce programs and services within the higher education institutions.

I like to paint, garden and enjoy entertaining at the home my husband built for us overlooking a nice bass pond with many wooded trails for walking and ATV riding. I am very pleased to have an opportunity to serve the residents of Perry County.
