A member of New Garden Monthly Meeting, North Caroline Yearly Meeting (FUM), she has served on the Friends World Committee for Consultation, participated in American Friends Service Committee activities in North Carolina and Southeast Asia, and visited Friends meetings in Europe while teaching in the Guilford overseas programs.
