From a childhood with little exposure to gardening I’ve evolved to become an avid gardener with a passion for working in my gardens and the woods at our property in western Loudoun County. I graduated from the University of Maryland in 1972, followed by nursing school. I have spent the past 35 years providing care in a variety of nursing specialties, most recently as a field nurse in the tuberculosis program at the Loudoun County Health Department.
My children, now in their 30’s, attended Hillsboro Elementary School. For 2 years during that time I served as treasurer for the Hillsboro School PTO (very small organization-not yet incorporated as a PTA).
As a graduate of the 2015 Master Gardener training class I now spend my time working at the Demonstration Garden. I remain invested in supporting the garden as a project of Master Gardeners and as an asset to Loudoun County.
