She loves singing, reading and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was blessed to write a book in 2019 entitled Push Past Pain (To the Blessing on the Other Side) in which she shares some of her life experiences to encourage others to keep pushing past the obstacles that life can send to keep us from our blessings. She has a strong faith in God and is extremely thankful for the privilege to work in end of life care for over 2 decades.
