I describe myself as one who wears many hats. I work in CETL and University Assessment as the IS Resource Tech/Program Associate and also serve on the Classified Staff Council as Communications Coordinator. My formal education and work experience is in horticulture. Over the years I have developed a keen interest in the production of and access to nutritious foods and potable water especially for women and children. I promote healthy lifestyle choices through presentations at area schools, businesses, and organizations. I also volunteer with Teamwork Africa, Inc., an organization which attends to the spiritual and physical needs of villages in remote interior villages of Liberia, West Africa. My husband, daughter and I live on a small farm with a variable assortment of organically-raised fruits and vegetables, sheep, chickens, dogs, cats, and just about anything else that wanders in. Although I am involved in many other activities, I relish faith, family, travel, a good read, music, and of course, gardening.
