I was born in Germany, and became an American citizen in 2010. I hold a Masters degree in translation from Heidelberg University, and an MBA from Rotterdam School of Management in the Netherlands. My corporate career included assignments in Germany, Kazakhstan and Switzerland. That’s where I met my husband, Jack, an American. We moved to New York in 2003, where our daughter Sophia was born, and where I got involved in the revival and renovation of an ELCA Lutheran church and preschool. After moving to Minnesota, I became the Director of Business Administration at Richfield Lutheran in 2019, tasked with bringing the church back to financial sustainability. I love gardening, and spending quality time with family and friends. I am honored and excited to join St. Andrew, and look forward to meeting you soon!
