Originally from Williamsburg VA, Dale moved to Wilson to attend Atlantic Christian College (now Barton College). Eventually transferring to East Carolina University, Dale earned a degree in Therapeutic Recreation and began her career as a recreation therapist working with special needs children. After several years living in Greenville NC, Dale made her way back to Wilson where she now works for the Wilson County Department of Social Services as a financial educator. After referring several of her customers to New Christian Food Pantry (NCFP), Dale became impressed with Candy and Marvin Taylor’s tireless dedication to those in need and joined NCFP’s board as secretary. Outside of her work and other board positions with Hattie Daniels Day Care and Wilson area Young Life, Dale enjoys tackling DIY projects, reading, and listening to her husband of over 33 years play music in his acoustic band.
