I graduated from A.S. Clark High School in 1963 and later went back to Nursing School. I graduated from
North Height School of Nursing with a LPN License. I truly love my nursing career and still doing some capacity of it today.

I joined Fellowship Bible Baptist Church in 1996, and have since been a member of the Mass Choir, Caring Hearts Ministry, and Christian Enrichment.

How has your career molded you as a person?
My career has taught me to be compassion to the sick and the ones in need; because if you keep living, you may be in that same shape/predicament. Always respect the “Sick” and the “Elders”.

Treat people the way you want to be treated, rather young or old.

How would you like to be remembered?
I would like to be remembered as a hardworking, loving, giving servant of God, and planting seeds for the Kingdom of God.

“Be Respectful”

What is your “special” Scripture?
I have two: (1) Psalms 37:4 – Delight thyself also in the Lord and he shall give the desires of thine
heart (2) Psalms 100:5 – For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
