Work Experience

I worked for 18 years as a medical laboratory technologist assisting patients, physicians, and health care facilities in our community to better serve the wellness of Gallia County.

Volunteering as a youth leader I discovered my love of helping children and teens in all aspects of life.  I love advising the students at University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College with their financial aid needs, but more than that, I enjoy watching students become successful adults and hoping I had a hand in that.

 

Biography

I grew up in Rio Grande, attending Rio Grande Elementary and Gallia Academy High School.  GO BIG BLUE!  I started my education with the University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College and after 18 years in the medical technology field, I continued on at Ohio University focusing on child psychology.

I have a serving heart that has a special place for our youth.  Once I began serving as a youth leader, I knew I needed to focus my attention on today’s youth by inspiring them to be “better”, better daughters and sons, better students, better human beings.  I love our students at University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College and I hope to be a great asset in the coming years on contributing to our students being “better” .
