Dr. Drake has five children. She has elected to work part-time in order to balance her work and family life. She and her family are active in their community and at First Presbyterian Church. She loves spending time outdoors and frequents places such as the Augusta Canal. Because her family has been greatly blessed by adoption, she has a special interest in caring for adopted and fostered children. She is also active in several local organizations in our community that support adoption. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading, playing games, and spending time with family and friends.
