Favorite Thing About Work: A few of my favorite things are the opportunity to work with school counselors-in-training from various school districts, the privilege to be a lifelong learner at a Christian University, and the joy to work with an outstanding department.

Personal Information: Married in 1973 to Larry, we have three grown children, Matthew (wife Samantha; grandson Charleston), Nicole (husband Wendell and grandson Sayge), and Taylor, who continue to entertain and delight us. After thirty-three years as a teacher and counselor, I retired from the public school system, so I am fortunate to be able to continue to work in a career that I respect and enjoy. When not working, I enjoy watching wildlife from the porch of my rural home, cooking southern comfort foods, spoiling my dog and cat, and not watching the clock.
