She rose above many personal challenges and turned her life from personal challenge to success by believing that she could, by pursing her goals and ambitions, by working hard, being honest, persevering, and by not letting others control or determine her destiny.
She claimed her rightful place in this world, by striving to carve out a legacy worth remembering. One that will outlive her, and by not letting anyone or anything deter to her from seeking and achieving her “highest good.” She stood up for herself and others, when tough times would have knocked most people down and kept them down.
She invested her life in worthy causes that were bigger than her and she learned that Life’s true “Joy” is discovered in helping those who can’t help themselves.
She has always been active in the community, in many ways both “public and private.” She has taught “free” classes on Sexual Harassment, Civil Rights, Workplace & Domestic Violence, and Estate Planning. She has been a guest speaker, numerous times for “Career Days” at several schools and churches, sharing her past life experiences, which she had “overcame” of what some would call “insurmountable odds.”
She has a passion for traveling and meeting new people. She enjoys boating, skiing, and she loves to dance. She loves life and intends to enjoy as much of it as she can until the Lord calls her home.

Lastly and importantly, she loves the Lord with all her heart mind and soul.
