I grew up in the small town of Fritch located in the Texas Panhandle. My faith tradition was Southern Baptist and I always felt like I had a call on my life. It wasn’t until I became a member of a United Methodist Church in O’Fallon, Missouri in 1994 that I began the process of actually following God’s call on my life. The process would eventually lead me to enroll in seminary. Since graduating with a Masters of Divinity from Saint Paul School of Theology and being ordained a Full Elder, I have had the pleasure of serving churches in Kansas and Nebraska. It is a joy serving alongside the congregation as we journey together in faith always seeking God’s direction. I am also a graduate of Frank Phillips College and the University of Houston with degrees in business and marketing. My husband Steve and I have been married since 1984. We have two adult daughters. Megan lives in Houston, Texas. Kaitlin lives in Topeka, KS.
