She is now retired. As of April, 2019, she has been married for 57 years and has 2 adult children and 2 teenage granddaughters. "My spiritual journey began at Christ Unity Church in Sacramento in 1974 where I came to understand that I could improve the quality of my life by aligning my thinking with Unity Principles. Deeply inspired, I took all the classes and workshops available and recognized the value in leading a God-centered life through commitment to daily prayer, meditation and spiritual practices such as journaling, tithing, and service. I have been fortunate to have served in 3 Spiritual Communities, most recently at Unity of Roseville as Board Treasurer, for 6 years. After a year off, it is a joy to be joining Rev. Mary and the other Board Members, to promote and fulfill the vision and mission of this Spiritual Community, by adhering to the 5 Principles of Unity."
