I was born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southwest Virginia (and for the locals, that’s pronounced Appa-LATCH-ia) – hillbilly country. My dad had a furniture store and was quite active in our little community of about 2500 souls. Mom stayed home and did volunteer projects in the community – mostly Garden Club and beautification. One sister, two years ahead of me in school, was brilliant and tough to live up to – so I forged my own path.
College was a Presbyterian school about forty miles from home – small school and I became the proverbial Big Fish there and loved it. In the summer after my junior year, I got a chance to attend a theater program in New York City – off-Broadway and WOW, did I fall for that city! It’s still my favorite place to visit…and I would want to live there!
I love sports (spectator), long walks, springtime, traveling . . . life! Nearly five years ago I was diagnosed with uterine cancer – talk about a wake-up call to get your priorities straight! It’s all turned out okay . . . but I never ever want to be that scared again. On the other hand, I learned something important about myself and my ability to work through adversity. Did I mention that God works in mysterious ways???
