  1. Briefly, what have you done personally or professionally since high school?
  2. Most recently I worked as the Arts in Communities Director for the North Carolina Arts Council for 16 years. In that position I used my nonprofit management experience to oversee a $2 million grant program which allocated funds to North Carolina’s 100 counties. Prior to that, I worked in arts management and as a clinical social worker.

  3. How long have you lived in Raleigh/Cary/Durham?
  4. I have lived in Raleigh for 20 years.

  5. What was your motivation for joining ALTA?
  6. A friend has volunteered for ALTA for several years and spoke highly of the women involved, the organization, and programs provided to the community. She suggested I attend a meeting to see if ALTA was a good fit for me.

  7. Please, tell us something about you we may not know or something about you that is unique or unexpected.
  8. I was an avid backpacker when I was young. I hiked the Appalachian Trail through North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. The backpack and tent have been permanently retired.
