How did you connect to St. Marcus?

My husband and I were first connected to St. Marcus as a school family on the K3 waiting list. After an awe-inspiring Palm Sunday worship service, we became church members. Our daughter, Charlotte, was accepted to St. Marcus School, and I got connected with the Annual Benefit Gala as a volunteer. When the Lord’s timing was right, I was offered a full-time staff position.

What do you love about what you do?

The people!

If you had a Bible passage/quote for your life and ministry what would it be?

“Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.” -Matthew 5:15 (ESV)

Tell us about your family…

-My husband of 20 years, Mark, works at St. Marcus in our music ministry and maintenance (try saying that five times really fast)
-Our daughter Charlotte is approaching Middle School. She's most excited to keep sharpening her awesome reading skills. Her favorite extracurricular activities are quite opposites of one another: Praise Dance and wrestling.
-I adore Boston Terriers and have one who's name is Kitty

“When I have free time, you will find me…”

Trying to get as much fresh air as possible by pulling a wagon or tandem biking to one of the many Milwaukee County parks/playgrounds.

What’s your favorite vacation spot?

Anywhere along the shores of Lake Michigan

What’s one fun fact about you?

I was a bass player in a local Milwaukee rock band.
