I have been on staff with First Lutheran since 2012 and a member of the church since 2004. Prior to coming to First Lutheran I spent 20 years as an Air Force wife, teaching elementary and K-12 music. I then worked at the Kearney Housing Agency managing low-income housing.
I enjoy sharing my passion for music in a variety of ways. I have a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance from the University of Southern California. I play flute, alto flute and piccolo in the UNK Flute Choir, piccolo in the Kearney Symphony Orchestra, flute in the annual Messiah Orchestra and also perform as a soloist locally and nationally.
Additionally, as the director of the Chancel Bell Choir at First Lutheran, I have been involved with handbells since 1980. I have two sons and two grandsons.
