How did you get connected to Mercy Home?
Susan Flood, a good friend from college, invited me to a Graduates’ Luncheon many years ago.

Why is the mission of Mercy Home important to you?
Because Mercy Home positively changes kids’ lives. Kids are not responsible for the situations they find themselves in and sometimes help outside the family is needed to nourish youth, physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. The positive support for the kids has far-reaching impact on other family, community, and the kids’ future, both professionally and personally.

What do you consider to be your proudest accomplishment?
Being a mom of three boys.

What would you like your legacy at Mercy Home to be?
That I was passionate about the mission and supported Mercy Home as best I could.
