I joined the Timebank in 2013 after signing up at the Farmers’ Market. “I waited until I retired to join, as I traveled a lot in my work. Previously I was a training/technical assistance consultant in special education for the state Departments of Health, Education and Human services… specializing in Early Childhood.”
My early days as an advocate for kids with challenges and their families, and social justice blended well with the mission of the Timebank’s commitment to community. I have made many great friends through connections with our Phoenixville Timebank. I have served on the Board, been a member of the Events Committee and presently I chair the Membership Committee. I have hosted Potlucks, worked on the PATB newsletter, helped at the Farmers’ Market, and currently coordinate the Days for Girls Activity group.
My husband Tom and I are active gardeners; we like to help others with their garden upkeep and are part of the PATB Garden Blitz crew. I belong to Living Landscapes, a committee of the Phoenixville Transition group. I also am obsessed with fiber arts, especially weaving and spinning. I love to sew, quilt and anything else involving crafts. My husband and I enjoy the great outdoors…biking, kayaking, walking, exploring gardens. We also travel as often as we can and spend time with our two grown daughters and their families.
In the Timebank, we have found a community of like minded individuals committed to making Phoenixville a just, verdant and welcoming place.
