Q: So, cat person or dog person?
A: I love watching the morning dog show that trots by our front window. But I’ve only ever owned cats (or rather, they’ve owned me), so I confess a special affection for felines. Currently, we share our home with two gray tabbies, Samson and Boaz.
Q: Favorite neighborhood in Louisville?
A: We have so many wonderful, historic neighborhoods — Crescent Hill, Germantown, Old Louisville, Butchertown, Cherokee Triangle, Tyler Park, Clifton, to name a few. Since moving here in 1981, I’ve lived in the Highlands, Phoenix Hill, Shelby Park, Douglass Loop, Middletown, and now in St. Matthews.
Q: Who cooks at your house?
A: My husband, Bill, is the by far the better chef, often pulling cookbooks off the shelf and trying new recipes. I make the same dishes, over and over, so I’m sure they’ll be edible. If you want lasagna, honey Dijon pork, or lemon chicken, c’mon over.
Q: Where do you see Women's Ministry at Christ Church in 5 years?
A: My greatest dream is for one-on-one discipleship to become a keystone of women’s ministry. Nothing helps us grow in Christ like growing together, side by side—studying God’s Word, finding ways to apply what we’re learning, and sharing God’s love with everyone He brings across our paths.
