She has served the Clarkston Farm and Garden Club through holding many offices in the club including president as well as being active in activities. Her work in education and Garden Club have intertwined over the years as Garden Club members read to second grade students in March and facilitate an assembly on Michigan Mammals in May for fourth graders.
