During her time working as a patient/client advocate at Loving Care Hospice and Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resource Center, she demonstrated exceptional skill and performance. She volunteered in the children’s ministry of the Lifepoint Church in Plain City, which she attended, and she enjoyed volunteering at DNA (Daily Needs Assistance), as well as other community service initiatives and several other volunteer opportunities.

She wanted the tale of her life to represent two things: first, that she never doubted the goodness of God, and second, that she recognized individuals for who they were and campaigned for them. She wanted this to be reflected in the story of her life. “Your work here is done, excellent and faithful servant,” the master said.
