Dorcas’ professional work experiences is in Human Resources and Career Management.  She worked under Metro Nashville Government until she was laid off on December 14, 2009.  This date is significant because 21 days later, without a job or insurance she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and in her words, “my story now has a new chapter.”

 

Dorcas says,” I truly believe that all things work together for those who love the Lord, only if we surrender all, and recognize the peace that God has reserved for us, that surpasses all understands.”
