1. Who are/were your role models for "giving back" to your community and how did they influence you?
I have been privileged to live in 4 states and active in 5 vibrant communities. Many of the women and men I was privileged to work with were key leaders in local philantrophy - giving of their time, talent and treasure. Working with them, we witnessed change in the support our medical communities provided for families, growth in opportunities for women and girls to expand their intellectual and social opportunities and support for women as they transitioned from work to retirement.

2. What issues impacting women & girls are you most passionate about? Do you have any personal connection to any of these issues?
Fiscal stability for women and children with an emphasis on fiscal security for aging women. Healthy lifestyles for women and access to medical care at all ages.

3. What would you tell other women and girls about The Women's Fund to encourage them to get involved?
The Women's Fund is a way to provide support for and engage in addressing issues facing the women in our community. It is also a wonderful way to connect with others of similiar interests.

4. Tell us a little bit about yourself: 
I'm a retired educator, having served in public schools in Virginia and various university positions in Maryland, Washington, DC, Maine, Michigan and North Carolina. When I left the presidency of Western Michigan University, my husband and I returned to my native community - the greater Winston-Salem/Lexington area. SInce starting a higher education consulting firm (JIHBailey Associates), I have worked with East Carolina and Winston-Salem State Universities. My husband Bren and I have a golden named Duncan. Our passions are traveling, reading, collegiate sports and our families in the area and beyond. In addition to being active with the Women's Fund, I serve on The Shepherd's Center of Greater Winston-Salem's Board of Directors.
