I grew up in Plainfield, Illinois where I attended Sharon United Methodist Church. I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Business Administration and completed my MBA at North Central College. While at North Central, I met my husband, Dean, during an accounting class. We lived in Illinois with our two sons, Jake and Charlie, until 2009 when a job change brought us back to Dean’s home state. I was a full time stay at home mom and worked part time in various capacities including at a “mega” church in the business office. I am very excited to be working for FUMC!

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
I have a crazy family! They bring me so much joy and spending time with them tops my list. I also enjoy crafting. Yes, I am addicted to Pinterest. I enjoy sewing, paper crafting and upholstery projects.

Favorite scripture passage?
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
