I have been Parish Secretary at The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration since February, 2007. I appreciate the people I have worked with and gotten to know over that period of almost nine years. I have always enjoyed clerical work. Technology (computers) has assured that I will never burn out. Just when you think you know what you need to know, technology brings about change and change is good. I am semi-retired and grateful for my part-time employment with a church that is so warm and caring.
I am a proud mother, aunt, and great- aunt. I enjoy reading, watching Blues hockey and Cardinals baseball, and spending time with my daughter, nieces and nephews, and friends. I’ve worked as a secretary in the Pathology Department at Christian Hospital for 30 years, and I’ve been at Transfiguration for over five years.
