After living all over the country, I moved to Athens and immediately knew it was home. My husband, GregDavis, and I are fortunate to have our sons and their families in Atlanta where we see them often. I retired from a career in education and advocacy for the rights of people with disabilities. Working in public school systems and universities has shown me how conflict mediation and restorative practices can end cycles of destructive behavior and change lives. My doctorate is in Educational Psychology and Research, and I love writing, hiking, and working with others to keep making our community better for everyone.
