Tell us about yourself.
I'm a native of Chicago. My day job is the Chief
Operating Officer at the YWCA Lancaster. I love to
dabble with photography. I love to travel and try
new foods. I'm a graduate of Penn State, and love
college sports. My husband Mark and I live near
Millersville. We have two sons. Edward is in the
U.S. Army and he's stationed at Fort Bliss in El
Paso, TX. Derek is a sophomore at Penn Manor.
We LOVE our Boxer, Gumbo.

mainly administrative. I miss working with children. I have worked in childcare and education for
over 25 years. I think that I will provide families with a safe and fun environment for their children
while they worship and I will get my battery charged with kid time!
What is the last great book you read, movie you saw, and song you listened to? Why?

story of Atticus Finch continued. The last great movie I saw was Beauty and the Beast. LOVED it!

Pope's, "You're The Reason I Come Home." I loved it because it was the first dance of a couple that
was newly married. The lyrics literally made me cry. The bride was looking at her groom and
singing it to him - that made me cry, too. I went right home and found it and added it to my
What does it mean to you to be part of the Grandview community?
Being part of the Grandview community is huge to me. I appreciate the caring and friendly people. I
appreciate the way our pastor and church staff always has a hug, a kind word, and a smile. It feels
like I belong.
Anything else you'd like to share?
I once got to be a passenger in a stock car and took laps on the Daytona International Speedway. I
got to travel 190 miles an hour!!!
