Cheryl Vaughan - Administrative assistant

My childhood hometown is Lakeside, Ohio. Yes, survived the winters of the snow belt and admit I miss it along with all that Lake Erie shore life provided. The summers are similar to the beautiful setting of Lake Junaluska, hosting the West and East Ohio Conferences of the United Methodist Church.

My adult hometown is Winston- Salem, relocated 40+ years ago and reside in Ardmore. Prior career as a Legal Administrative Assistant has now opened the door for me to transition my skills along with my joy as a Methodist to serve Ardmore UMC. I am mother to daughter, Kaylyn. I live, love, and support local businesses. Enjoy fellowship, cooking/grilling, gardening, reading and house decorating/renovations (with power tools!).  

If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
