Upon retirement from the corporate world, she found her niche and used her abilities and experience in her work at Veterans’ Outreach.

She grew up understanding the physical and mental hardships a person suffers when returning from active duty. She believed that working at Veterans’Outreach was a mission and not a job.
Everyone at Veterans’ Outreach will miss her with joy and kindness in our hearts. We only knew her for one year, but she inspired us with her energy, enthusiasm, humor, compassion, brotherly love, and areal passion for her work, her family and friends, her church, and most of all, our Lord.
