Not even knowing where Springfield, Ohio was, I moved here for the sole purpose of starting my dental career. What a great idea that was! Living and working in this community has been very rewarding.
Whether at the grocery store or the gym, I always manage to run into some of my patients. This only happens in a small community, the same size community where one’s involvement can make a difference.
Along with the Springfield Rotary Club and Wittenberg University, I am involved with helping the people of Lesotho. Lesotho is one of the 40 poorest countries in the world, where 1 in 3 people are infected with HIV/AIDS. There are over 110,000 children orphaned due to the devastation of AIDS. Others and I are committed to "Building Hope", working on an orphanage in Motsekuoa, Lesotho. Together with Rotary International and many generous people, we are building a new dormitory, chicken coop, piggery and planting fruit trees.
I spend a great amount of time volunteering in Springfield and Clark County, yet my time with these children and people of Lesotho always grounds me and is a reminder of how lucky we are.
My husband is Ross McGregor, who due to term limits, has retired as our state representative. Together we have a dog from the One Mission Dog Rescue, Maxwell.
