What do you like best about IFMA?

Networking

Your first job?

Yes

What do you like best about your current job?

Wide variety of work entailed and many challenges

Best advice ever received:

My father once told me 'Don't lose your common sense'.

Tell us about your family:

I have two children, a son and a daughter, and two 'nana' sons.

Greatest personal achievement:

Acquiring the position I am currently in. I started to work in the Commonwealth in 1973 as a Clerk Stenographer 1 and worked through the steps, never expecting to reach the position I am currently in. It's been challenging, sometimes a struggle, to get to this point, but well worth it.

What do you do for fun?

Golf; spend time with grandsons doing kid stuff!

Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know:

Have never lived outside of a 3 mile radius of my original home. It's Perry County - what can I say?
