I have served as church treasurer since February 28, 2003. My husband, Roger, and I are parents of Thomas (Melissa) and grandson Cooper who live in Cedar Falls and Sarah (Andy) Bradley who live in Cedar Rapids. I enjoy family, cross stitching and reading. I serve on the Christian Education Committee, Deacon, Elder and Sunday School teacher. I also served for six years on the Camp Wyoming Board.

I have served as office administrator at First Presbyterian since July of 2019. I was born and raised in Monticello. My husband, Nick, and I raise our family, Gavin, Anicka and Beckett, here in Monticello. When I'm not busy chasing my family, I enjoy cooking/baking, spending time outside with my family, reading and quilting.
