I grew up on the coast of Virginia. I was raised in the Catholic faith but began spending all my time in Methodist churches in the early 70’s. I have gone back and forth between living in Virginia or North Carolina since I graduated high school. My nursing career has primarily been in the field of hospice care. I became involved with Haywood Street Congregation and Respite in the summer of 2014. It is such a blessing to be a part of a truly loving, caring, supportive and open community. I am honored to be involved with the Respite program.
