|I was born and raised in Johnson City and consider it a
blessing to have been born here. I am a graduate of Happy
Valley High School in Elizabethton, TN and lots of years of on
the job training.
I have been an employee of ETSU Physicians and Associates for twenty six years. The first eleven years I worked for the Department of Psychiatry as a Patient Account Representative and filled in wherever I was needed from the front desk to insurance billing and collections.
The last fifteen years I have worked in the Department of Family
Medicine. I do a wide variety of things in Family Medicine
with my time being distributed 60% between the Division of Rural
Health as an Assistant to the division and 40% of my time being
split between being a coordinator for the Department of Family
Medicine’s M.E.A.C. (Medical Education Assistance
Corporation a.k.a. as ETSU Physicians and Associates) practice and
processing Resident Recruitment Expenses as well as other duties as
they come up.
I have been blessed with two beautiful children, a daughter and a son. They have given me three beautiful grandchildren, a granddaughter and two grandsons respectively, and a wonderful son-in-law and daughter-in-law. I have my “baby” Corky, who is a Jack Russell Terrier and I love her dearly. She definitely keeps me hopping!
My hobbies are reading, reading and more reading and playing computer games. I love to talk to people and help out whenever I can.
