I have been a member of Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church for ten years. I have been coming to stay at a family cabin in the Blowing Rock area regularly since the late 1960’s and moved to the area permanently in 2012. I received an Associate’s Degree from Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I retired after 28 years of public health nursing in South Carolina after working in various management positions the last of which was as clinic director of ten clinic sites covering a seven county area. Blowing Rock Cares (BRC) is an important part of Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church and I feel fortunate to be a participant in the BRC activities as a board member.
