I grew up in the small town of Linden, Iowa where I lived on a farm. Shortly after graduating high school I met my husband Jerry. After getting married in 1988 and moving to Adel, we had two children. Having had five major jobs in my life, I have a wide skill set of knowledge and experience that have helped shape me into the person I am today. From construction office manager, to Pharmacy tech, and even the occasional softball coach, I can thrive in any setting.
Described by my family as a ‘social butterfly’, I enjoy getting to know everyone both inside and outside of New Hope Church. With a bubbly personality and a contagious energy, I have a passion for serving both in the church and in the community.
Things I am Thankful For:
My loving and forgiving husband of 30 years and my amazing kids. That God loves me for who I am and has made life fulfilling
I enjoy camping with friends and golfing. I love to walk with my husband and our golden retriever Amazing Grace and teaching fitness classes anywhere and everywhere. I want to learn to enjoy quiet downtime more as we grow older.
