Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - PROFILES -

At Our Best col­umn cov­ers North­west Arkansas’ non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions, char­i­ties and so­cial events ev­ery Sun­day in the Pro­files sec­tion.

“Rather than wait­ing for some­one else to come in and fix it, peo­ple in our area see a need and find a way to meet it.

“I hope the col­umn serves as a re­source for those or­ga­ni­za­tions to get the word out about them­selves and the ser­vices they pro­vide.”

FAC­TOIDS

Ok­la­homa na­tive.

Has writ­ten her col­umn for 10 years. Fayetteville res­i­dent 26 years.

Avoids dessert at so­cial events by putting all her sil­ver­ware on the plate when din­ner plates are cleared.

“I fig­ured that one out af­ter I gained weight my first year on the job. All those just-one-bites add up.”
