In my time away from my responsibilities at Malone I enjoy reading, working in our yard and attending Ohio State football games with my husband. I am also an active member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Massillon and enjoy teaching a bible class each Sunday and singing in the choir. It is also a privilege to serve on the Mayor's Literacy Commission in Canton in support of adult and family literacy.
