Connie has worked at Whit’s End since she moved to Odyssey. She is spontaneous and never inclined to hold back what she’s thinking, but she has a strong heart for discipleship—especially toward the kids at Whit’s End.
Connie seems to age very slowly. She is outspoken and has helped run the place for a very long time. She moved to Odyssey from California with her mother after her parents divorced. At first, Connie didn’t want to stay in a tiny town like Odyssey but the love of Christ transformed her heart. She has a stubborn streak and keeps a platonic relationship with co-worker Eugene Meltsner and often banters with him to the point of exhaustion. She’s outspoken and impulsive—never one to shy from expressing her thoughts, giving in to her curiosity, or taking action. The biggest change in Connie’s life in recent days has been the addition of her half-sister Jules to her life and home. Being a surrogate parent for Jules has allowed Connie to teach many of the same lessons that she learned as a teenager.
