I've spent my working life as a teacher of young children. The opportunity to share much of what I learned at Wellesley with these children and their families has been fulfilling and rewarding to me. I've certainly shared my knowledge with my own children as well as with my extended family. The power of Wellesley's motto as well as the value of my liberal arts education has served me well in my personal journey. My greatest gift to Wellesley has been that of my daughter, whose presence as a student has made a difference in her ability to minister to those in physical pain and suffering in her capacity as an empathetic nurse.
