MS. NORTH CAROLINA SENIOR AMERICA 2015,
Polly was born in Jackson, Tennessee and has lived and worked in the great state of North Carolina for more than thirty years. She enjoyed a long career as a Clinical Social Worker in many healthcare settings in North Carolina. She has become very much aware of how chronic illnesses contribute to a poor quality of life for individuals and familes. Her experiences have taught her the importance of healthy living. For Polly, healthy living is more than exercise aand eating a healthy diet. True healthy living involves caring for her mind, spirit and body.
Polly has been actively involved in fitness programs for many years. She encourages her family members and friends to participate in fitness programs as well. Polly's volunteer work includes serving as a Disaster Mental Health worker for the American Red Cross. She is available in her county to provide emotional support and mental health referrals for individuals after a loss due to fire or natural disaster.
After learning about community service opportunities for senior ladies through pageant participation, Polly decided to enter the Ms North Carolina Senior America Pageant and was very fortunate to win the 2015 title. Although her journey has just begun, she is already feeling the love, support, and sisterhood of such a great organization.
