I live in Rutherfordton, NC with my husband of 47 years, Brad, 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 foster dogs. Brad served in the United States Navy for 6 years active and 20 years in the Naval Reserve.
I am the mother of two children, Amanda, who recently moved to the Asheville area after being up north for 20 years and Matthew, who we lost to Colon Cancer in March after a 6 year battle. I am so thankful to my son in law, Jesse, for relocating to NC. Quilting and long arming for our Veterans has been a great comfort. We have over 8600 Veterans in Rutherford County alone.
I was a librarian in the Rutherford County Public Library system for 26 years. Since retiring in 2010 I have been active in animal rescue, home renovation, gardening, book club and Quilts of Valor.
I look forward to serving Veterans and helping Quilts of Valor grow throughout NC.
