Hmmm I have posted briefly on her before. Think the fact she is a Christian, It tends go down like a wet balloon here.

lol yes I think I saw some of that when searching her name here on the forum.

I don’t think it’s part of her speech much and shouldn’t take away from all that she has accomplished.


Hmmm - I’ve talked with her before and she’s never brought up any religious references. She’s a researcher at Dartmouth University - New Hampshire. She’s very professional - and a great success story for someone who has schizophrenia.
