As a retired high school business/computer teacher and yearbook advisor, I am now able to devote my time

doing what I love: sewing, quilting, and scrapbooking. I am a charter member of FSS and honored to be the FSS Historian. I am also the Programs Chair of the Citrus County Cracker Quilters and organize quilting retreats for the group and serve as the Programs Chair and Historian of the Nature Coast Chapter of ASG. I enjoy teaching beginning and intermediate quilting.

I feel very fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful group of women who have similar interests. I am honored to be able to use my skills to help others. Volunteering is something I feel very strongly about.
