I grew up in Platte Center, Nebraska. My husband, Jon, and I both attended Kearney State College, we fell in love with Kearney, and have been here ever since. We’ve been married 39 years and have three children, three grandchildren, and three grand dogs. Previously I worked at UNK for 12 years as an office associate and event organizer. Before that I worked at Ramada for 11 years planning conventions and weddings. I’m very excited to join the First Lutheran Church team to utilize my talents in a way that serves others. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, planting flowers, camping, and doing crafts.
