I have worked in the field of education since 1983 in various capacities as an Educational Professional Assistant. I started as a School Secretary in a K-8 school and then moved on to Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent of Schools. My leap into Higher Education took place in 1998 and I have been at the college level ever since, working in Academic Affairs and then into Admissions as the Office Manager! I love students and that is why I believe in their success, both professionally and personally, and hope I can contribute to their love of learning every day. I lived in the same county in Vermont for 61 years and moved to South Carolina recently to enjoy warmer temperatures and beautiful sunshine (and I have not been disappointed)! I have two children, a daughter, Angela, in California (with one granddaughter) and a son, Ken, in Chicago (with a grandson and granddaughter) who are the joys of my life. Their love and kindness with their children makes my heart grow every day.
