I was raised in Williamson, NY, a small apple town in Western NY. I was married for 25 years, have 3 children and 5 grandchildren.
I spent most of my working years in the transportation business, being responsible for drivers scheduling, pay, benefits, DOT and Safety Logs as well as the occasional hiring and firing.
After retiring from my first official job, I took a seasonal job as rental agent/property manager for 106 properties. When the property was sold, I was really retired. That is when I began quilting with a vengeance! Several years passed before I learned about QOV. Soon after buying my first longarm, I became a QOV Longarm Volunteer, still constantly looking for a local group to join. After approximately 4 years, I started Finger Lakes QOV in February of 2016. We continue to grow constantly which makes me not only happy but also very proud.
