    I enjoy my work here for Archdale Friends Meeting and Archdale Friends School. I have lived in this area all my life, am married and have one grown son. I love my church (First Baptist Church), spending time with family and my large extended family. I enjoy baking pound cakes to share with friends and neighbors, writing, quilting and sewing as time permits.

    As the secretary of Archdale Friends Meeting, I enjoy communicating with our congregation and community about the ministries that are offered here at our Meetinghouse. I have lived in the area all my life. I am married and have three children, two grown sons and one teenage daughter. I enjoy keeping up with my busy family, cooking and participating in various activities here at Archdale. God has richly blessed my life and I am thankful.
