A nurse for nearly 30 years in NY and NJ, my husband Dan and I retired to the Myrtle Beach, SC area, which is where we spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon in 1975! As a Registered Professional Nurse with Certification in a number of specialties including home care, I was afforded the opportunity of working closely with various Social Service Agencies in NY and NJ.
A lifelong Christian, I was ordained as a Presbyterian deacon at Old Tennent Presbyterian Church in 1993 and, after relocating to SC in 2000, elected to become ordained as a non-denominational minister. I established “MandysPath” Ministry in 2011. “MandysPath” Ministry is a member of Pacific Life Church, El Sobrante, CA, network of ministries http://pacificlifechurch.org/.
I direct an outreach ministry in an alternative setting, providing spiritual care to a congregation of more than 500 people from around the world via the Internet. As part of this outreach, I write a daily faith-based blog. In March, 2012 I was asked to become a board member of Heroes For Children which assists the Guardian ad Litem program of Horry County, SC, a non-profit group of court appointed advocates who represent the best interests of children in Family Court proceedings involving allegations of abuse or neglect.
I have been married since 1975 to a wonderful man, Daniel. I have a son Daniel and his wife Melissa who live in NYC. My daughter Sabrina and my grandson Landon live here in SC. My father Harold has made Colorado his home base for now.
