Food Service Manager


As a missionary kid, I grew up surrounded by ministry. The church has always felt like home - especially since we were almost always the last family to leave every Sunday. Now my husband, Dean, and kids, Johanna and Kip, get the same experience! I look forward to helping create a fun and loving church environment  - one that they won't mind being the last to leave!
