I have always been active in the greater Mulberry area.

I am a graduate of Lakeland High School class of 1979. I am a member of First Baptist Church at the Mall.Past member of the Mulberry Lions Club.

Before marrying Mark in 1998 I worked for Lakeland Eye Clinic for 17 years.

I am currently the Business Administrator for Seigler Funeral Home.

When I can manage to find any free time, I like to read,tan & dine-out. The business that Mark and I are so dedicated to doesn't leave us much leisure time.

But that's ok, I love being able to help the families we serve during the loss of their loved one. I find my job to be very rewarding and gratifying.
