Profile Updated: September 24, 2021
Residing In: Winchester, VA USA
Spouse/Partner: John McNair
Occupation: Director of Academic Affairs
Children: We lost Gracie to kidney disease three Christmases ago. Slinky entered our lives a few weeks later - More…the hole Gracie left was too big to wait longer! He's quite the character and gets along okay with Jefferson, now 11. (9/2021)

Update: Just sold the house in Winchester and moved to Martinsburg after commuting for nearly nine years - how did I accumulate so much STUFF? Absolutely love what we do at Valley College - changing lives through education. Won a Leadership award in January for getting our campus transitioned to remote learning during Covid - we never closed operations! Started my bachelor's in health services admin this summer and holding a 4.0 despite Algebra's best efforts to thwart me! (Mr. Lee would truly be shocked!) After 16 years of no vacations, John and I have taken a few days to visit the beach the last three years. Latest was Ocean City, MD, 9/12/21. Still visit with Mom nearly every Sunday, enjoy seeing family whenever we can - well, the ones who still acknowledge my existence, haha. (9/2021)


Just obtained my third associates degree in November, 2014. (The first two were in business; this one was in Health Services Administration.)

I'm now part of an exclusive club in that I was diagnosed with tongue cancer in September, 2014, had surgery in October, then radiation in November/December. I'm recovering nicely and enjoying the only good side effect from radiation: dramatic weight loss!

Interests are movies, thrift store bargain hunting, spending time with family and friends, painting, decorating, history, antiques, gardening, scrapbooking, etc., etc.

I have a facebook page where I sometimes remember to check messages and post trivial crap about my life. I bought a home in Winchester in 2011 and began teaching in 2012.

School Story:

Honestly? I hated high school. Loathed it. The most fun I had was as an office aide, playing poker in Mrs. Pence's classroom at lunchtime and listening to Mrs. Gochenour in English class and working on the newspaper. I lived in Maurertown and went to Toms Brook Elementary until we moved to Richmond (Chesterfield Co) after 6th grade. There I went to Jr High and mapped out the rest of my education with classes like German and Theater Arts. When we moved back to Shenandoah County three years later, none of the classes I planned to study were available. The emphasis was on athletics and God help you if you didn't have the right last name or connections (and I surely did not). I thought I was coming back home (we moved back into the same house, my brothers were CHS alumni) but felt like an outsider at school. I was miserable for those three years. Thankfully, college was a better experience! But I do have fond memories of the people who befriended me and made the time at CHS tolerable, like Sandi Baber, Martha Symons, Jeff Dodson and Dwayne Keller.

Since our 30th reunion, I've reconnected with several folks from our class and found a wonderful, supportive group of women who have become such good friends. TZFFB!! (Thank Zuckerberg for FaceBook) since it has kept me in touch with so many folks, especially during my health crisis and recovery. I would never have gotten through all that by myself.

Gracie Mae, about 5 yrs old. She's "differently abled" to be PC, birth defects left her with an altered left front leg and no paw. Can't call her handicapped--she leaps across the sofas and races around the apt like any other cat.
