After teaching and serving as the assistant dean in the School of Social Work, she began a second career as the director of DCH Employee Assistance Program.

She enjoys taking classes through OLLI. Her interests have varied from the arts to history. “I am particularly excited about the growth of this program, which has reached more than 600 members, including a program beginning at the Gadsden campus,” she said.

In her spare time, she loves to paint, weave and garden. “Family, however, comes first,” she said, speaking of her husband of 43 years, George, her two adult children and two grandchildren.
