Pastoral Assistant and Coordinator of Congregational Care
I grew up on a farm in southwestern Missouri and attended Missouri State University. I have two adult children: a daughter, her husband and my granddaughter, who live in Benton Park; and a son, his wife, a grandson and two granddaughters, who live in Tulsa, OK. I live in the The Hill neighborhood in St. Louis.
I attend St. Francis Xavier (College) Church and I am active in Contemplative Outreach of St. Louis. I’m a trained Stephen Leader, volunteer with Bridge Bread, and am a Lay Associate with the Sisters of Mercy in Frontenac. My background includes a career as a human resource manager in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I have worked at MUMC since January of 2000 and am a Pastoral Assistant to Pastors Andy Bryan and Stephanie Lendt and am also the Congregational Care Coordinator..
