I married Mike, a retired United Methodist pastor, on August 10, 1974. We have two daughters: Sarah, an art teacher in Denver, and Anna a marketing and social media strategist in Portland, Oregon. I was a speech pathologist for 36 years and tutored students in a variety of subjects, but I’ve retired from that work and now I’m a spiritual director, writer, artist, and retreat leader. I write regularly for SpouseConnect, a website geared toward clergy spouses, and have written for The Indianapolis Star newspaper.
