I have a heart for doing life with people who are at a major crossroads in life, a crisis of belief, or a traumatic experience. Transition happens naturally as we grow from the joy of new life to toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, senior and begins again with the celebration of new life. Those natural transitions personally cause a variety of crises and possibly trauma in our community. My personal experiences in life have given me opportunity to experience the value of sitting with others while I grieved, walking through life’s lessons together and standing unified on the power of His love. I love learning with others and being with others who enjoy learning too. Currently, I am working with the Wesleyan Church on training leaders to be compassionate – hospitable, to all others. I learn the most when I teach. I look forward to learning and doing life with Freshman college students as they embark on their next great adventure!
I have written a children’s book that is available on amazon: “Can you see me?”. I have spoke at Ladies retreats and taught Sunday School and Homeschool Cooperatives. I played flute for 37 years at wedding and on worship teams. Today my favorite thing to do is read books to my grandson and teach him the value of having a song in your heart.
Area of Speciality
As the Assistant to the Dean, I facilitate communication with Dr. Crotser. She is happy to speak with students and prospective students, so please feel free to contact her through me at any time. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the students as the Administrative Program Director in the Graduate Nursing Program. I work closely with Brenda Mutton to meet the needs of students from the beginning to the end of the program.
Whether you are a prospective student looking for more information, or a current student with questions, we are here to assist and support you. I have enjoyed being a part of the RWC community beginning with my college years and on to serving with staff in Residence Life, Social Work, Advancement and now, Nursing.
