Autobiography

Background: I grew up in the Poconos, and spent my whole childhood in the same house, one my parents built as I was growing up. Every summer we go to our cabin in the Delaware State Forest to fish, read, swim, kayak and relax. Apart from that I love traversing through nature all year round – whether hiking, kayaking, snowboarding, or biking. In my spare time I enjoy writing poetry, playing music, reading, exploring and taking crazy photos in my orange chair.

Family: My wife Antonia, and I got married in the woods behind my parent’s house in the summer of 2013.  We have a son, Hobbes Arlington Dowling who was born in August 2015 and a dog named ‘Boo” Radley.  Together, Antonia and I love to explore nature, write poetry, read books our loud together, stargaze, dance, sketch / paint, and adventure together.  We live on an Orchard in the Poconos and enjoy harvest wild fruit all summer long.

Administrator

Autobiography

Background: I grew up in a small town in New England. Growing up in a small town meant that everyone knew everyone. So there were many opportunities for friendships. The summers brought us to the beach and the winters found us ice skating. My family moved to Allentown, PA when I was 16, and I have stayed in the area ever since then.

School: I graduated from high school in Allentown, PA and then attended Lehigh Carbon Community College. My business background has mostly been working for businesses in an office environment and also being a bookkeeper. My work experiences have given me the background to tackle many diverse opportunities here at Cornerstone, including being the church treasurer.

Family: My husband Gary, also from the northeast, and I have been married for over 35 years and we have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren. Our son Jason is married to Gina and they live in PA with their son and daughter. Our daughter, Heather is married to Brett and they reside in New Jersey with their 1 daughter.  I enjoy reading, cross stitching, working on our family tree, walking, kayaking, time at the beach, and time with my family.
