I was born in Oshkosh, WI and aside from a 6 month stint in Seattle, WA I have lived in the area my entire life! I love Wisconsin! This July I will be married to my husband, Ian, for 7 years. We met at Bible college in MO where we were both Youth and Family Ministry majors. We don’t have children yet, but thoroughly enjoy the company of our wonderful cat, Chloe, and adorable and energetic puggle, Nova. I have the best nieces and nephews in the whole world! I adore being an Auntie:)
I am super passionate about horses, health-food, gardening and the grace Jesus has shown to me! If you want to get me talking…start a conversation on one of those topics! I enjoy my work here at Shepherd and am honored to serve this church family. Haven’t met me yet? My office is in the basement…come on down and say hi!
Dream Vacation – Equitreking (essentially exploring the world via horseback) I am refreshed by the beauty of God’s magnificent creation (both horse and scenery!).
All Time Favorite Movies – My favorite musical is “Singing in the Rain” Gene Kelly was an amazing singer/dancer/actor and Donald O Connor’s physical humor can’t be matched! It’s a feel good film that leaves you smiling and humming for days:)
The most fun I ever have is when I… – That’s a close tie…Sunday afternoons with the Handy family- we are so loud and crazy together! Whether we are playing games, watching football or just hanging out…laughs are ALWAYS abundant. I also love adventuring with Ian- we are daring and crazy and LOVE new places, people, cultures, foods etc.
How I’d blow $100 on myself – I would call a ladies day with Aimee, Kelly and Mom. Thrift stores, coffee, lunch and laughs. Can’t be beat:)
Three must-haves if you were going away for a whole year – My Keen hiking shoes, my iPhone & charger, AND IAN!
