About The Author

I bask in a sweet spot in life in Davie County, serving as director of the public library and as president for the Humane Society. A Wake Forest undergraduate studying business and history, I also played intercollegiate volleyball which took me to my first national tournament. A subsequent ten years of playing national amateur volleyball in USAV brought my husband of now 32 years and additional national tournaments. I went on to earn an MBA from the University of Virginia and Masters of Library Science from UNC-Greensboro. My husband and I moved to Davie County in 1990 and feel blessed to have met many wonderful people over the years. As a newcomer to the library, I learned Davie County history from James Wall and Doris Frye. Given the positions I occupy professionally and as a volunteer, it comes as no surprise that my interests include diving into good books, catering to our dogs’ whims, hiking, traveling, and working both crossword and jigsaw puzzles.
