I have been a member of All Souls for about six years. I was initially and intensely attracted to the congregational covenant with its twin messages of love and service.
My late husband and I settled in Indianapolis nearly 35 years ago after living in a variety of Midwest locations. Originally trained as an occupational therapist; I spent the last 30 years of my career as an elementary school teacher in Lawrence Township.
I am involved as a coordinator with our church’s commitment to the Interfaith Hospitality Network. I am a member of the Hospitality Committee and the Caring Committee. I participated in the Beloved Community workshops and hope to bring all that I learned in that space to my role as an at-large board member.
I share my home with a shy, sweet Labrador Retriever named Cullen. We particularly enjoy walking in Richey Woods near home. I do volunteer tutoring with School on Wheels. And give time to Central Indiana Labrador Rescue and Adoption, doing adoption home visits and transporting dogs to and from foster homes. I enjoy reading (especially mysteries), travel, and knitting. Raised in Detroit, I am an avid fan of the Detroit Tigers.
My two children, Christine and Kevin, have thoughtfully provided me with six beautiful and accomplished grandchildren.
