How did you first hear about Palmer Home? Why did you decide to apply?

I can’t actually recall the first time I heard about it. But my uncle worked as the superintendent for about 25 years and we would often visit when we were growing up. Years after he retired, someone called him to say they needed a set of caregivers. He mentioned me, my husband, and our children. The rest is history! And in 1991, I transitioned to the administrative side of Palmer Home. There was a need for someone to help establish what is now the Campus Life Office. And in 2003, I transferred from the Columbus campus to the Hernando campus to replicate that system.

What is a typical workday like for you?

There is no typical day. You never know what new things will come your way as you do your best to do the routine things!

What is your favorite thing to do on the weekend?

Cook, bake, or read.

What inspires you?

Others who testify to God’s faithfulness and provision during trials and suffering.

What’s your favorite movie? TV show?

My favorite movie is Sabrina. And my favorite TV show is Food Network’s “Chopped.”
