I live in St. Albans, which is in the suburbs of Charleston, the state capital of West Virginia. I am married to my best friend, Gary and have 3 children, Justin, Misty, Josh and grandson Kody. I am retired from Verizon Communications with 33 years of service and now enjoying retirement.
I have been quilting since 2005 when I needed a hobby to keep me busy while recuperating from a car accident. I have been involved with making quilts for soldiers for the past 7 years through The Home of the Brave Quilt Project and started working with the Quilts of Valor projects 2 years ago. I am humbled to be a part of this project and look forward to organizing sewing events to make more quilts for our WV Veterans and meeting other WV quilters and Veterans.
