How long have you lived in Richmond?
What does your career path look like?
I taught school for over 30 years and then retired to open a Reggio Emilia-inspired preschool for children with limited resources.
What was your path to Impact?
Friendship. My friend Ludi Webber told me about the group in 2015 and invited me to attend the Big Give.
Richmond has so many great causes and opportunities to become involved. Why did you choose Impact 100 and collective giving?
Because you are directly involved as a donor. Also, I have met some incredible women from all walks of life.
Reviewing our winners past and present, which speaks to you the most?
Shalom Farms and the incredible work they do. Also, our lack of awards for anything Environmental is such a shame; I hope we can do more to promote that category.
Have you done any volunteer work or made contributions as a result of learning about one of our grant applicants or winners?
The school takes up most of my time, so I haven’t been able to commit to volunteerism.
