About Me

I write to be able to learn, explore and share with others many topics that I am curious about. These may include new business ideas, politics, the environment, and social issues. I am a victim advocate and volunteer in court to assist children in foster care. 

To relax I enjoy being out in nature, whether that is gardening or hiking. I love dogs and have two that were adopted from the local "dog pound."

I get a great feeling of satisfaction from volunteering and have done so for many years. I have been a volunteer for the state of Georgia on the Child Abuse Prevention Treatment Act on the Children's Justice Act (CAPTA CJA) panel where I manage the group that makes recommendations to the state for projects to fund that relate to this topic.  

I also have volunteered for Carroll County CASA as a court-appointed special advocate to be the voice of foster children that are in foster homes for over ten years.
