Gail grew up in Camp Hill, graduated from Dickinson College in 1965 and did graduate work in special education, psychology and counseling at Shippensburg and Millersburg Universities. She worked as a special education teacher and then a Positive Behavior Support consultant for the Capital Area Intermediate Unit for 32 years.
She has been a member of UUCV since 2007 – serving on the RE and Social Justice Committees for two years, the Nominating Committee for six years and the Membership Committee for ten years – the last eight of those as chair. An enthusiastic member three different Small Groups during her time at UUCV, she is now one of the Lunch Lovers. One of her favorite activities at UUCV is helping with the children’s RE classes.
Gail has been president of the Carlisle Area Dog Parks Association board for ten years and is looking forward to serving instead on a board that does not have to resolve issues between beings who sometimes bite others when angry or afraid!
She lives in Carlisle with her husband, Bob, and best friend – an Australian Labradoodle named Gypsy Rose. Her two sons and their families live in Seattle.
