Welcome to Zion. I am blessed to be serving here at Zion, and will be starting in July.  I am originally from upstate New York, where I earned my BA in Teaching with a double major in English and German.  My teaching career began as a public high school teacher, but soon after I was contracted to teach German and English at Lutheran High Northwest.  I worked toward and received my colloquy (Lutheran Teacher’s Diploma) while serving at Our Savior in Armada, MI.  Over the years I also earned an Administration Degree.

My husband, Peter, and I have two wonderful daughters. Allison, our oldest lives in Colorado and our youngest, Amanda lives in Grand Rapids.  When I am not spending time with my mom, my family, or friends, I love to read and go for walks.   

”God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:8
