Born and raised in New York City, Dorothy attended the City University of New York at Kingsborough College in Brooklyn. She moved to Washington in 1988 and immediately felt at home in the Pacific Northwest. Dorothy is married to Brad and they have four adult children.
While her husband attended seminary, Dorothy was the Assistant Director for the LaTijera United Methodist Preschool in Los Angeles and then moved to the First United Methodist Preschool in Santa Monica, CA.
