Pat loves learning and interacting with others, especially through teaching. She has taught music, history, religion, French, English and speech in a variety of settings. With a PhD in history, Pat offered university classes in late Roman and early European history, but at various times in her career taught students from pre-school through college age. Enjoying extensive travel together throughout their marriage, Pat and her husband now delight in being near family. She helps homeschool her grandsons, gives music lessons, leads an annual music camp, and pursues a lifelong interest in exploring the sacred. Her greatest reward, she feels, has been observing her daughters, Amy and Lynn, become delightful, loving and interesting women.
