Married to the Bobster, mama to Sunny (Alexandria) and the Nino (Daniel).
Born and raised in N.Y., she and the hubs moved to the land of corn, Champaign, IL. to raise their family, and cheer for all things Illini! The family gravitated to Nashville, TN. for school and work and this is where community is being built.
Upon moving here, Known_Nashville was born. The need is great among women to be accepted, known and loved right where they are. It is a safe, come as you are, all are welcome space. Known gathers monthly and is open to all women in the Nashville area. Journeys are shared, prayers lifted up and community grows deep roots.
Dale is an ENFJ on the personality charts which means she rarely gets tired, loves to meet people, go places and do fun things…. while her hubs wishes she would just take a nap, so he could.
Dale loves building genuine community, meeting people different from herself and learning from them. One of her greatest joys is watching people find their God given talents and using them for His kingdom.
Dale was The Director Of Volunteers at Living Alternatives, A Pregnancy Resource Center in Champaign, Illinois, where she learned what grace truly looked like. She credits her bosses and coworkers for showing her every day what it means to lay your life down for one another.
Dale was an active board member for FCA and involved in Pinnacle Forum (Transforming Leaders to Transform Culture) and led the first Women’s Pinnacle Forum group. She has mentored high school women through small groups and one on one.
Dale clings to words that remind her of her purpose and goals.
"I am to be about my Fathers business.”
“I will never regret the times I was generous, only greedy.”
She also talks (a lot) and sometimes speaks, on topics related to life, loss, community and when life takes that left turn.
