Have been working here for 2 and ½ years. I am so very blessed to be working with this staff and most importantly to be able to connect people with to the living God every day!
Have been a St. Michael Church member for 16 years.
David is my husband. We have been married for 14 years. He is an Elder here at St. Michael. He is an automotive engineer by day.
I have 2 children. Katelyn 11 years old and is in 6th grade. Devin is 8 years old and is in 2nd grade.
Our family also has 2 dogs - Jonah is a 4 year old lab/hound mix, and Wonder is a 4 year old golden retriever.
I currently serve as Secretary on the Women’s Ministry Leadership Team. I have also taught Sunday School for the past 6 years and plan on continuing to teach for years to come, possibly teaching Confirmation in the near future.
When I am away for my second home (St. Michael), I am happily involved with my kids – Katelyn is in her first year of Confirmation at St. Michael, plays the clarinet and just started running with a running club at school. Devin attends Sunday school and is in the Kid’s Kingdom choir and plays Little League baseball.
In my free time, I am an avid reader, attend Bible studies as much as possible and enjoy spending time with family and friends and my dogs!! My family loves to camp, swim, bike ride and spend time up north in the summer – we love Lake Michigan!
Most importantly, my family’s and my passion in life is our faith and our love for our Lord Jesus Christ. I am blessed in my life beyond measure – all to the glory of our Lord!
