I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the ministry team at Sterling UMC.

I came to Sterling from a three-year appointment as the pastor at Dawson UMC in Wichita. Prior to my time there, I served eleven years as the Associate Pastor of Children, Youth and Families at Park Place Christian Church in Hutchinson.

I claim Mitchell Chapel UMC in rural Hutchinson as my “home church”. It is my involvement there as a volunteer that brought me to my calling in ministry. I am forever grateful to that congregation for their loving care and nurture.

I have a B.A. in Pastoral Studies and a certificate in Operational Leadership from Southwestern College in Winfield, Ks.  I also have an M.A. in Christian Ministries with an emphasis in Family Ministries from Friends University in Wichita.

My husband and I met one Christmas Eve during a candlelight worship service at Mitchell Chapel nearly forty years ago. We raised three children together on a small farm northwest of Hutchinson. We have two young grandsons.  Besides being with my family, I enjoy spending my down time with good coffee and reality TV shows.

It is my hope that everyone grows to know the love of Christ and to reach their full potential as a true child of God. I consider it a sacred privilege to walk alongside people in their life’s’ journeys.
