  • Earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Fayetteville State University, child advocacy had always been in my repertoire, as my very first job after college was to educate the care givers of young preschool children about appropriate discipline, positive reinforcement, and responsible parenting. Having raised 5 children through military sponsorship, I’ve had a diverse list of experiences and opportunities to guide them through their challenges and equally share in their triumphs. I’ve also spent countless hours at the schools of my children in a volunteer capacity to assist with their transition as newcomers. I worked as a foster care social worker for 5 years and also substituted in middle and elementary schools during my travel abroad as a military dependent. I also have several years of experience counseling persons with mental health challenges. Of all these jobs I’ve had, the most rewarding was to experience the joy of being a grandparent. I enjoy traveling, cooking, crosswords and other word-related games, roller-skating, listening to music and singing along to my favorite tunes.
