Q: What is your favorite thing or favorite memory about WCSI?
A: WCSI staff – I have some truly wonderful and best friends that I have made at WCSI over the years.
Q: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: When I was a child, I was told girls were either nurses or secretaries and I knew I was not cut out to be a nurse (my sister is a wonderful nurse). I took the road to be a secretary. Worked for 14 years as one as I went to college nights and weekends in order to get a college degree.
Q: What was your first job ever?
A: I started babysitting at age 11 but my first job with a paycheck was being a waitress – it was a very short-lived job.
Q: What lead to you working in this field?
A: A friend wanted to be a volunteer with the Blackburn Center and “forced” me to go to the training with her. We both finished the training and worked in the Shelter for abused women and children. I worked at the Shelter part-time for 37 years. Working with people just came easy to me.
Q: What’s the best advice you can give to someone who is just starting out in your field?
A: There is so much to learn from the clients. Listen to them. They will teach you something every day!
Q: What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
A: I love being with my family and friends! I have a group of about 15 women that we call ourselves the Wine Tasting Fridays Posse and a Posse we are! We are a wide range of personalities, backgrounds and lifestyles but we all come together with love, support and encouragement…and a little wine! We have joined forces many times to help with everything from fundraisers to funerals. Truly one of the best things God has blessed me with!
Q: If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
A: Sing – which others can attest to from my karaoke last weekend. 😊
Q: What is your “happy place”?
A: My happy place is anywhere with my family.
