I was one of twelve children. My parents lived through the Great Depression. I think these experiences taught my parents the value of helping your neighbor. They were also persons of strong Faith. I have been volunteering all my life, helping neighbors, teaching Sunday school, serving as a babysitter for nephews and nieces and helping older brothers build the homes, they lived in. My career was in Social Work. Most of it was in administration, more specifically, child welfare. I taught classes at the master’s degree level for Grand Valley State University and MSU. The administrative skills gained in my employment and the heart for others that I acquired from my Family serve me very well as I seek to serve God as an Elder and as Treasurer.
