I am in my last year of seminary at North Park Theological Seminary. I have completed a certificate in Spiritual Direction and am working toward my Master of Divinity. I have worked as an Occupational Therapist and as an Executive Director for a local nonprofit. I currently work as a Chaplain at Lutheran Medical Center and have served as a chaplain since pre-pandemic 2020. I have been a member at ACC for 18 years and served as a lay leader in some aspect for most of that time. I am excited to now be serving on staff with our church! I married Mark in 1998. We have two adults and one teenager; Samantha, Nathaniel, and Lydia.
