How long have you been volunteering with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful? 
I think this is my 3rd summer

Why did you start volunteering with us? 
To fulfill my requirement of volunteer hours for the Master Gardener certification.

What was your favorite experience volunteering with KIB this year? 
I enjoy the people I work with.

Tell us about an “unknown talent” that you have.
It’s not really unknown, but I do play the organ for a funeral home.

What environmental/community issue are you most committed to?
Keeping things green and healthy…for our children and grandchildren.

What is your favorite tree and/or flower?
I love coneflowers and I love to watch the finches come and eat the seeds from them.

What part of town do you live in? 
Just south of Greenwood. It’s peaceful and yet close enough to Indy so that we can get downtown rather quickly.

Friendly, caring, resourceful

What else are you involved in within the community? 
My church, Southport Heights Christian Church and the Johnson County Garden Club
