Learn something new every day – following my father’s example who took college courses at age 93.
On weekends, you can find me…
Working around the house and trying to find time to read and do my crafts.
What do you enjoy doing for fun?
I enjoy quilting, knitting, crocheting, and sewing and am trying to teach myself weaving. I enjoy water sports, particularly kayaking and swimming.
Where have you traveled?
I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many places – Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, India, and across the US many times. I’ve been inside the Taj Mahal in Agra, India.
Prior to joining the Bakker Agency, my career was in Early Childhood Special Education. I taught Early Childhood classes at University of Saint Joseph and directed the School for Young Children as well as doing research in child development. When I joined the Agency, I found many of my early childhood skills came in handy!
