Personal Life:

I am the very proud mother of three children: Rachel, a chaplain at the University of Michigan’s Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, where she lives with her wife, L-J Brazier; Anna, who works as a biologist studying endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers in North Carolina, where she lives with her husband, Mark Prinz; and Will, a high school honors physics teacher in New Jersey, where he lives with his husband, Michael Hairston.

My husband, Jim, and I have been on life’s rollercoaster together for 40 years, and I couldn’t ask for a better friend and sweetheart with whom to share those exhilarating climbs, heart-stopping dips, straight-aways, and unexpected turns. I appreciate all our dear friends and family who share this ride with us, including Dave Myers, who is a gem to work for and to know. He’s a marvelous example to me and many, many others of how to truly enjoy the ride while making a difference in the world.
