I grew up in Platte Center, NE. My husband, Jon, and I attended Kearney State College, fell in love with Kearney, and have lived here since. We’ve been married 39 years and have three children, three grandchildren, and three grand dogs. Previously I worked at UNK for twelve years as an office associate and event organizer. Prior to UNK I worked at the Ramada Sales Office planning meetings, large 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.
