Jerry is a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She served as a Public Health Nurse in Guilford County for 35 years prior to her retirement in 2006. She was the second nurse hired in the Women Health Program and later served as Director of the program for 12 years. Following retirement she served as the interim Nursing Director for the Nurse Family Partnership at Guilford Child Development. In 2007, she wrote a grant to the Moses Cone Wesley Long Community Health Foundation to start a Congregational Nursing Program at our church and in partnership with the Oak Ridge First Baptist Church. This 3-year grant was funded in 2008. Jerry serves as a volunteer.

Jerry’s background in disease preventive and health promotion is a good match for congregational nursing. Jerry has served on foreign mission trips through our church outreach. She serves locally in mission work related to the underserved populations. The challenges and rewards to faith based nursing are many including the opportunity to connect professional nursing to the spiritual dimension of health; provide health care to the whole person; body, mind, and spirit; and to connect the faith community in healing and care of each other.

Jerry is married to Dan, they have two daughters, Jennifer and Catherine, and 3 three grandchildren, Fletcher, Campbell and Riley. They joined our church in 1982 and love calling this congregation their family. Jerry and Dan enjoy activities including camping, hiking and travel.
