I was introduced to Unity by my husband, Carl Klaes, about 8 years ago. We were married by Pastor Barbara Clevenger and received our initial Unity education training from Kathy Long. I was draw to Unity by the sincerity, warmth, love and acceptance one receives from the Unity family at Unity of Farmington Hills.
I have been a Registered Occupational Therapist for 35 + years with a passion for helping people to be as independent as possible both physically and mentally. Together Carl and I are proud parents of 5 wonderful adult children. My interests include gardening, cooking and being on (or in) the water.
I feel it is a privilege to serve on the Board with an amazing talented team and to be part of the Unity community and to serve others in hope they receive the same spiritual fullness as I have at Unity of Farmington Hills.
