I grew up in southern Minnesota in the Valley of the Jolly Green Giant. I’ve lived in the Midwest my entire life, between Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. I graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Finance/Business Administration and worked in publishing for over 16 years before stepping into the Church Administrator position here at Shepherd.
I am married to my husband Mark and we have three sons (Zack, Alex and Ben), all of whom are very active and keep us on our toes. We’ve been members of Shepherd since 1999 and have enjoyed seeing the growth of the various ministries and growing in our faith walk with all of you.
What’s your favorite dessert or restaurant? Coconut cream pie, because nobody else in the family likes coconut so I actually get to eat it all by myself!
What’s in your CD player these days? Big Daddy Weave and James Taylor.
What was your favorite childhood TV show? Oh, there were so many, and all of them will date me… The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Groucho Marx Show, The Love Boat, and Twilight Zone.
What’s your favorite way to spend a day off? Sleeping in, a leisurely lunch with my girlfriends and then curling up with a great book on my Kindle. Finish it off with a movie night with the family and a big bowl of popcorn!
