Sally grew up in southwest Virginia and moved to this great area after graduating from Radford University in 1996. Soon, thereafter, she met her husband, Scott, and they have been married for 20 years and have two teenagers. Rescuing dogs is their family’s passion and their Scottish Terriers are a big part of their day and family. Before joining the preschool team at Hillsdale Church, mentoring for Communities in Schools filled Sally’s volunteer time. Having the ability to learn from children is equally as important as them learning from us adults--we are all in this together. When not at the preschool, Sally works in real estate, too. Helping family and friends find a new home is a great and challenging job, but working with children is a true calling. Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times.
