I have been a member of NWBC since 1995 and have enjoyed volunteering in preschool church and Awana. I attended Southern Illinois University and majored in special education. Prior to moving to Bellingham, I taught children with special needs in Texas and South Carolina. After moving to Bellingham, I taught in Lummi Tribal School, Bellingham, Meridian and Ferndale school districts. Since retiring, I continue to substitute teach. I come from a family of 7 children and loving/believing parents and accepted Jesus as my savior at age 11. I’m so thankful to be a member of a Bible believing church. My husband, Jim, and I raised 5 children and have 3 grandsons.
