Holly requested us to look through the member spotlights. This is a great request! Jackie Zimmerman, you and I have much in common. As professionals, we both work for religious organizations with similar missions but personally we both enjoy anything outdoors. If I have a moment of time, you will find me outside enjoying nature and all its offerings! Glad to meet you, Jackie!
