I have lived in the Louisville area since 1976. Gardening has been a lifelong hobby so I joined the Town and Country Garden Club of Louisville in 2004. I served as its President in 2008 and 2009 and continue to be involved on the committee level. As an active member of the Canton Garden Center I have held the offices of Second Vice President, Secretary (twice) and Assistant Treasurer and am currently serving on several committees.
I received my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Library Science degrees from Kent State University. During my library career I was a program coordinator for one of Ohio’s Regional Library Systems in the 1990s. I retired from Stark County District Library (Canton, OH) in 2004 after serving as a manager of one of their branches. Recently I was appointed to the Louisville Public Library Board of Trustees. I look forward to serving as Canton’s District Director.
