I grew up in Michigan and received a B.A and M.A. from Michigan State University. I moved to Nashville in 1978 and have been member of DPC since 1988. During much of that time, I have enjoyed serving on the Outreach Committee. I thoroughly enjoyed my career in the field of mental health. I retired from my position as Intake Clinician at Mental Health Cooperative in May 2016, after 23 years of service. My interests include reading, traveling, following the Nashville Predators and volunteer work.
